DACIA, the Romanian-founded Renault brand, offers incentives for the employees to leave the company voluntarily. As reported by the local media, DACIA had offered its employees who volunteer to go consistent sums.
According to Jurnalul de Arges, the newspaper that leaked this information, the sums offered are between EUR 3,000 and EUR 26,000, depending on the employee’s length of service with DACIA. For getting EUR 26,000, the employee must have been working for more than 16 years with the company.
This move sends a strong signal: Renault Group is preparing to restructure its activities, including those in Romania. As we announced before, Renault is rumoured to have plans to leave Romania or to exit most of its participation in the DACIA plant in Mioveni.
According to Reuters, two inside Renault sources said Renault was open to selling up to 60% of its thermal engine production but that the first preference proposals had already appeared. The intention to separate the activities is aimed at several production units of the group’s heat engines, including the Mioveni Mechanical Plant in Arges, Romania, and engineering centres in several countries, including Romania.
Now, DACIA encourages its employees who work in the sectors that will be digitised or automated. The offer is available until the end of 2022, and the employees who would take advantage of this would also be offered a discount when buying a new DACIA car.
