Unisys France SA says it is studying a plan to cut 150 jobs from the 424-strong workforce at its plant in Villers-Ecalles. The unions say the plan will include 97 actual lay-offs, while management says the number will be only 48. A spokesman said the unions are counting all staff who will move from full-time to part-time work, and who will take early retirement. The decision arises from a reorganisation of manufacturing, in which the French factory will end production of specialised peripherals, such as ones for banking terminals, and some personal computer boards, which will be made in larger quantity in an as yet undetermined location. The plant will become the client-server manufacturing site for Europe, adding new personal computer lines and Unix servers to its product portfolio.
