El Corte Inglés has excluded from its voluntary plan to leave, which will affect some 3,000 people, those over 50 years of age.

He argues that this cut is not a pre-retirement plan, as reported by the unions CCOO, Fasga, Fetico and UGT in a statement after the first meeting of the negotiating commission.

The company has also transferred to the unions that in

this plan temporary employees

, relief contracts and workers on "days off"

are also excluded


This plan, they have insisted, "is not a rejuvenation plan, nor a termination plan, but a process of downsizing and reorganizing the company."

In this way, since it is not an early retirement, but rather a termination of working life in El Corte Inglés, the company wants to protect the groups "who have more difficulty" their integration into the labor market.

During the meeting,

the technical

and economic


of the causes that justify this plan of dismissal

has been delivered to the unions

, a report that is subject to "confidentiality".

Most of the posts affected (2,500) correspond to store personnel and about 500 to central services.

This is the largest employment adjustment made by El Corte Inglés, which has a workforce of 90,000 people throughout the group.

It will be carried out at El Corte Inglés SA,

that is to say, it will reach some 63,000 employees (representing 5% of this division and 3% of the group's total).

They would be left out, for example, El Corte Inglés Viajes, Seguros and Supercor.

Yes, workers from Sfera, Hipercor or department stores are included.

The objective of this plan, according to the company, is to

adapt to new circumstances

and "adapt the company's resources to current needs."
