Actualización sobre COVID-19
Allison Transmission ha informado a su personal que debido a la reducción de la disponibilidad de suministros, la reducción de la demanda de los clientes y a circunstancias imprevistas fuera de nuestro control, se requieren cambios organizativos difíciles pero necesarios, entre ellos, los despidos.
La intención es que sea un despido temporal dentro de nuestro personal de producción, en el cual los empleados afectados no trabajarán, pero la relación laboral formal seguirá en vigor. Esto se seguirá evaluando dado que en este momento se desconoce el cambiante panorama de mercado
y su impacto.
Allison Transmission ralentizará y suspenderá temporalmente la producción en determinadas instalaciones como iniciativa para reequilibrar el trabajo en función de la oferta de componentes y la demanda de los clientes. Si bien se reduce la cantidad de empleados en las instalaciones, Allison continuará con sus medidas reforzadas
de prevención para reducir la posible propagación del virus COVID-19. Esto se sumará a los extensos protocolos de distanciamiento social, viajes e desinfección que ya se han implementado para garantizar la seguridad y el bienestar del personal de Allison
en todo el mundo.
