At Jet Aviation, around 190 jobs at the Basel location are on the brink. However, there are also critical voices, especially whether Swiss or French labor law is being applied.

In times of Corona, many companies are forced to carry out restructuring. In most cases this is done at the expense of its own workforce - this is also the case with Jet Aviation. As "Telebasel" reports, the operating airline is planning to cut at least 190 jobs at the Basel-Mulhouse location.

Around 1.200 employees are currently working for the subsidiary of the US defense company and aircraft manufacturer General Dynamics. The majority of French citizens and people resident in France are affected by this external layoff. 

Because of this, there could now be trouble with the French authorities: According to Jean-Luc Johaneck of the “Comitée de défense des travailleurs frontaliers”, the dismissal plan does not comply with the French regulations for social plans. "But French law applies because the airport is on French territory," he said.
