ROME May 10 Italian utility Enel has
reached an agreement on early retirement for 3,500 employees, a
person familiar with the matter said on Friday.
Enel will make use of a law passed by former Prime Minister
Mario Monti's government making it easier for workers to take
early retirement packages up to four years before retirement
"It's the first time such a large number of people make use
of this new law," said a union source.
At the end of last year Enel's global workforce totalled
nearly 74,000, in 40 countries, according to its website. (here)
