After not having renewed with more than 600 workers on fixed-term contracts since the beginning of the pandemic, TAP is preparing to dismiss a further 300 employees on fixed-term contracts.
TAP will not renew more than 300 fixed-term contracts in the coming months, after the airline has laid off 600 workers with fixed-term contracts since the beginning of the pandemic, reports Jornal Económico.
The reduction in jobs could affect more than 900 workers, in view of the restructuring plan which will have to be submitted to the EU because of the public aid it has received and which could lead to a reduction in routes and aircraft.
At the beginning of July, the Minister for Infrastructure, Pedro Nuno Santos, had already said in an interview with RTP that TAP would not renew fixed-term contracts, and that it was not possible to secure all jobs. The company had 10,600 workers at the end of last year.
