      A - I N F O S  N E W S  S E R V I C E

Last Wednesday 4th the owners of Valeo, a multinational company in the car
industry, sent out a press release informing that it will be closing its
lamps and headlights factory in the town of Sant Esteve Sesrovires,
Barcelona, transferring production to its factory in Martos, Jaen.

The Workplace Committee, of which the CGT is part, did not receive any
direct notification from the company about this closing until the following
day. The company wishes to carry out negotiations during this week, with a
calendar of meetings over three days (9th, 11th, 13th December, 2002) and
with a maximum duration of two hours each meeting.

This measure affects 261 workers who, in their majority, will be made
redundant because the company does not want to relocate them in the other
factories it has in Barcelona. The only solution it offers is relocation in
Martos (800 kms away) and pre-retirement to those who meet the requirements.

The closing of this factory is illogical since year after year it increases
benefits, with a 13% increase over last year, and the only reason is due to
organizational needs.

The CGT is totally opposed to the closure of Valeo Iluminacion, and we will
undertake all types of actions to fight against this new attack against the
rights of workers, therefore, as a first step we ask you to send faxes and
protest emails to the following addresses:

*VALEO central offices in Paris: Fax: +33 140 55 21 71. The director's
email: thierry.morin@valeo.com
*VALEO offices in Martos: Fax: +34 95 356 9107.
*VALEO offices in Sant Esteve Sesrovires: Fax: +34 93 776 8775.
*Presidency of the Generalitat de Catalunya (regional government):
*Counsellor of the Department of Labour of the Generalitat:

And solidarity emails can be sent to the CGT Syndical Section of Valeo
Iluminacion in Baix Llobregat: baixll@cgt.es
