Renault Group And Trade Unions Join Hands For The Development Of Renault ElectriCity

Renault Group and the representative trade unions (CFDT, CFE-CGC, CFTC, CGT, FO, and SUD) of the Hauts-de-France region have signed an agreement on the development of the Renault ElectriCity, which will group together the industrial sites of Douai, Maubeuge and Ruitz.

By doing so, the group aims to make the plants more efficient for the production of electric vehicles in Europe and to produce 400,000 vehicles per year by 2025.

To support this ambitious industrial project, Renault Group plans to create 700 permanent jobs between 2022 and the end of 2024, with 350 new hires at the Maubeuge site and 350 new hires spread over the Douai and Ruitz sites.

Additionally, the carmaker will form partnerships with universities to set up training schemes contributing to R&D and form partnerships with start-ups and specialised entities to support future developments in the automotive world.

Luciano Biondo, Director of Renault ElectriCity, said, "I am very proud to have contributed to the creation of Renault ElectriCity, a symbol of Renault's know-how and technological innovation, and to participate in the enhancement of the economic and social attractiveness of Hauts-de-France in Europe. This agreement, signed with all the trade unions, is proof that the commitment of employees, constructive social dialogue and a strong local presence is key to setting up a robust and attractive industrial model." (MT)
