Mise à jour COVID-19
Allison Transmission a informé son personnel qu’en raison de la réduction de la disponibilité de l’offre, de la diminution de la demande des clients et de circonstances imprévues indépendantes de notre volonté, des changements organisationnels difficiles, mais néanmoins indispensables, y compris des licenciements, sont nécessaires.
Cette mesure vise à mettre temporairement en chômage technique nos employés de production. Ces derniers ne travailleront pas, mais demeureront officiellement liés à l’entreprise par une relation de travail. Cette situation continuera d’être évaluée en raison de l’évolution constante du marché et
de son impact inconnu à l’heure actuelle.
Allison Transmission freinera et suspendra temporairement ses activités de production dans certaines installations afin de rééquilibrer le travail en fonction de l’offre de composants et de la demande des clients. Parallèlement à la réduction du nombre d’employés sur le site, Allison poursuivra
ses préventives renforcées afin de réduire la propagation potentielle du virus COVID-19. Ceci s’ajoutera aux protocoles de distanciation sociale, de déplacement et de désinfection qui ont déjà été mis en place pour assurer la sécurité et le bien-être de la main-d’œuvre d’Allison
dans le monde entier.
