Union calls on Grand Duke to find new court supplier

Villeroy and Boch have announced that they are closing their Luxembourg facility. The closure of the facility in Rollingergrund will cause the loss of 230 jobs in Luxembourg. This has not been popular and there have been protests.

The LCGB (Christian Federation of Trade Unions) has sent a letter to the Grand Duke to implore him to terminate V&B as a supplier to the Grand Ducal Court. They say this is appropriate because V&B has shown a disregard for their Luxembourg employees and paid little attention to the social attitudes of the day.

LCGB say that this would be a move of solidarity between the Grand Duke and the 230 employees who will lose their jobs.
