Padua/Ormoz, April 14, 2021 – Safilo announces that an agreement has been reached with the trade unions and the work council regarding the closure of the Ormo┼ż production site starting from June 2021.

The agreement provides the following social measures:

  • higher severances

  • higher holiday bonus (Regres za letni dopust)

  • additional pay out for employees under agreed social criteria

  • jubilee awards for employees who would otherwise not receive them, but would be entitled to them if still employed on 31.12.2021
