UniCredit mulls 3,000 voluntary job cuts under new plan – sources

UniCredit mulls 3,000 voluntary job cuts under new plan - sources

By Valentina Za

MILAN (Reuters) – UniCredit is considering cutting around 3,000 jobs through voluntary departures under a new strategic plan the Italian lender is due to present on Dec. 9, two sources familiar with the matter said on Wednesday.

The majority of the job cuts will affect corporate centres, the sources said, adding the figure was still tentative because the bank would start negotiations with unions only after unveiling the plan.

UniCredit, which last year lost the title of Italy’s No.1 bank to Intesa Sanpaolo (OTC:) when the rival took over mid-tier player UBI, hired in April investment banker Andrea Orcel as its new chief executive to replace Jean Pierre Mustier.

Intesa said this month it had agreed with unions 2,000 early departures and 1,100 new hires https://www.reuters.com/business/finance/intesa-signs-accord-with-unions-2000-early-staff-exits-1100-new-hires-2021-11-16 ahead of a new business plan due in February.

UniCredit, which operates in 13 markets including Germany, Austria and eastern Europe, employs 87,102 staff globally, of which around 36,000 are in Italy. The cuts would amount to 3.4% of UniCredit’s overall workforce.

In Italy, where a significant portion of the reductions would be concentrated given its relative weight for UniCredit, banks only lay off people on a voluntary basis and usually through costly early retirement schemes.

In recent years, the goal of Italian banking unions in accords over job redundancies has been to replace half of the people leaving with young hires.

UniCredit’s previous plan, unveiled in December 2019 and due to run through 2023, had envisaged 8,000 job cuts, leading to 1.6 billion euros in restructuring charges.

Following negotiations with unions after the plan, UniCredit in April 2020 agreed with Italian unions https://www.reuters.com/article/us-eurozone-banks-unicredit-idUKKBN21K2WP 5,200 voluntary departures in the country, partly offset by 2,600 new hires.

When he was hired in 2016 to bring UniCredit back from the brink, Mustier slashed 14,000 jobs under his first four-year plan.

Separately on Tuesday, sources said UniCredit was looking to streamline its insurance joint-ventures in Italy and discussing an extension of an option to take full control of a joint venture with France’s CNP Assurances.

Unions ready to call strike at Telecom Italia

MILAN (Reuters) – Italy’s telecommunications unions are preparing to call a strike at Telecom Italia (MI:) (TIM) amid uncertainty over the future of the group caught between its latest boardroom crisis and a proposed takeover by U.S. fund KKR.

KKR made a 10.8 billion euro ($12.2 billion) offer for TIM last month, just before a boardroom row forced group CEO Luigi Gubitosi to step down following a clash with top investor Vivendi (OTC:) after two profit warnings since July.

Last week, TIM placed oversight of the group’s strategic assets in the hands of Chairman Salvatore Rossi, setting up a special committee to study the KKR bid.

Unions have expressed concerns over the future of TIM’s 42,500 workers across Italy and have told the company they will not accept any reorganisation that puts jobs at risk, a document seen by Reuters shows.

“We want to be involved in any decision concerning an overhaul of the group,” Riccardo Saccone of the SLC-Cgil union said, adding a strike at TIM could be called within 10 days.

TIM was not immediately available for comment.

Any takeover deal is conditional on support from TIM’s board and the Italian government, as well as due diligence expected to last four weeks.

TIM’s fixed network is Italy’s main telecoms infrastructure and Rome has said its response to KKR will hinge on plans for the network which it sees as strategic. State lender Cassa Depositi e Prestiti is TIM’s second-biggest shareholder.
