BRF Brasil dismisses employees in Mineiros
19 July 2018
The agricultural giant BRF recently dismissed 50% of the employees of the turkey slaughtering sector in BRF Brasil Foods Refrigerator in the city of Mineiros. In March, BRF Brasil had already given collective vacations for 30 days to 497 workers due to restructuring. This massive layoff directly affects 500 farm workers who will also lose their jobs. The layoff altogether will cause an increase of unemployment by more than 10% in the town of Mineiros. The workers' union is currently analyzing how to avoid the layoff.
