The management of GE Hungary is in talks with unions on the future of lighting production in the country, but a decision on the matter is not expected for several weeks, GE's head for the region Philip Marshall said in a letter to Parliament's employment and labor affairs committee.
“Our business members are in continuing talks with employee representatives on questions and our plans related to GE Lighting's operation in Hungary. A decision has not been made and is not expected in the coming weeks,” Marshall said in the letter.
The parliamentary committee is expected to hear from GE's management as well as unions at a meeting next Tuesday, said committee chairman Nándor Gur.
GE unions said earlier that the company could shut down all lighting production in Hungary because of a ban on low-efficiency light bulbs by the EU from 2013. (MTI-ECONEWS)
