Russia: 577 Gornozavodskcement employees became unemployed in the six months to 30 June 2019. 87 resigned, 195 retired and 295 left by agreement with the company. This follows South Ural Mining and Processing’s takeover of the struggling cement producer in December 2018. Kommersant has reported that the liquidation of auxiliary departments is a part of unit optimisation which extends to the company’s facilities, with the site of a planned dry line at its 2.2Mt/yr (wet) integrated Perm cement plant being used for parking. Wages have reportedly risen for the remaining three quarters of the Gornozavodskcement’s original staff.
