Testi/Greve in Chianti (FI) Plant and Arquata Scrivia (AL) Grinding Center – Trade union agreement has been signed

Buzzi Unicem has reached an agreement with the trade unions and RSUs (Unitary workplace union structures) following the announcement that it will cease operations at the Greve in Chianti (FI) plant and Arquata Scrivia (AL) Grinding Center.

The negotiations prioritized solutions to support employment, including relocating employees, offering over 100 permanent positions at other business units of the group, as well as additional special mitigation measures in the form of financial support for housing, relocation and travel expenses.  

The company has also set up outplacement programs of up to 36 months, a “hiring incentive” for potential employers in the area, training and skills adaptation courses, and preferential treatment for new hires at the Group’s companies in Tuscany and Piedmont until 15 September 2024. 

Alternative forms of support have also been agreed for employees who are not able to accept a position available within the company. 

Employees who continue working for the company will be offered support in dealing with their new professional environments to ensure a successful collaboration over time. 

Buzzi Unicem concludes by reiterating its commitment to continue operating with a long-term vision and engaging constructively with local authorities on strategic matters in the area.
