MEXICO CITY Nov 27 (Reuters) - Mexico's Cemex, a major global cement maker, said on Tuesday that it will cut 339 staff at its Spanish unit, slightly less than originally expected.

The subsidiary mulled axing about one-fifth of its workforce in Spain - or between 350 and 400 jobs - a trade union official had told Reuters in late October
