The Trnava-based PSA Peugeot Citroen Slovakia car plant is suspending production for nine working days between October 28 and November 4 and between November 14 and 18, the plant's spokesperson, Ivana Pavelková, told the TASR newswire on October 19.
The spokesperson said this is being done because of a tense economic situation and social unrest in certain parts of Europe. Seven of the nine days will be used to train staff or employees will engage in alternative work.
"The plant is organising training especially because it aims to preserve staff salaries for October and November," Pavelková stated.
