“We were clearly lied to from the start. It was really a shock and a betrayal” : Audrey Lucas does not mince words, Saturday July 11, when talking about the situation of the Nokia site in Lannion (Côtes-d’Armor). The telephone giant plans to cut nearly 402 positions. Local elected officials are fighting to cancel this social plan by pointing to the millions of euros granted to the group in exchange for maintaining employment.
The collapse of the Nokia site would not be just a blow for its employees. Lannion lives partly to the rhythm of this business. Traders fear that the departure of several dismissed workers could have a direct impact on the city’s economy. There is reason for hope: many businesses are emerging in the city and the regular creation of start-ups could help restore employment and retain the victims of Nokia’s social plan.
