Weak orders: ThyssenKrupp Nirosta to introduce short-time working in Bochum from September 2012
Due to continuing weak orders at ThyssenKrupp Nirosta GmbH short-time working is being introduced from September 2012. This will affect the Bochum site (Germany), which employs 456 people. The other sites of ThyssenKrupp Nirosta are not affected by short-time working. This has been agreed between the works council and the company.
In recent weeks, the lower operating levels were initially offset using instruments such as flexible working time accounts, leave accounts and repair shifts. As things stand at present ThyssenKrupp Nirosta expects short-time working to be used only as a short-term measure.
