    French workers sue HP
    PARIS
    ” Some 323 employees at the ex-manufacturing site of Hewlett-Packard in
    l’Isle d’Abeau, near Grenoble (France), have decided to bring HP before
    the labor relations board for unfair dismissals, according to Agence
    France Presse.At the origin of the protest is the acquisition in the
    spring of 2002 of HP’s manufacturing site by California-based contract
    electronics manufacturer Sanmina-SCI. At that time, the site counted
    500 employees.Suffering from competition from Eastern Europe and Asia,
    Sanmina said it was having a hard time obtaining new contracts and
    decided in 2005 to close its plant in l’Isle d’Abeau.A union delegate
    indicated that employees are suing HP and Sanmina because they should
    have kept their working contracts and advantages at the time of the
    acquisition. As this was not the case, each employee is now claiming
    30.000 euros in damages.The trial will open on Oct. 22 in Vienne
    (France) and is likely to last for a couple days
