The Michelin group announced the La Roche-sur-Yon teams its plan to close the site. The remarkable commitment of the employees, the quality of the social dialogue and the efforts of the Group proved insufficient to complete the “Skipper” project, which was aimed at reinforcing the activity of the La Roche-sur-Yon site. This project, which was supported by a 70 million-euro investment, did not produce the expected results due to the structural transformation of the premium truck tire market, both in Europe and overseas: a European market with no growth expected, intense competition, with an entry level brand segment in constant increase. The priority of the Group’s management is to support each of the 619 employees to build with them their future career. Michelin is committed to ensuring that each person, according to his or her situation and projects, has a choice for the future.

Michelin will propose to the social partners to start as soon as possible the negotiation of an agreement on a support scheme for employees favoring voluntary mobility in order to avoid forced departures.

This approach will give the social partners the time and latitude necessary for the in-depth co-construction of solutions that are truly adapted to the needs of employees.

As part of this negotiation, in addition to an early retirement program, Michelin will offer secured internal and external mobility schemes, to enable each employee to continue on a good quality career pathway in the best possible conditions.
