  • Les activités de GE en France sont encore protégées par l'accord signé avec l'Etat autour de la promesse de créer 1.000 emplois nets d'ici fin 2018

Mercredi une source syndicale a indiqué à Reuters que GE comptait supprimer jusqu'à 4.500 emplois en Europe. GE Power, unité qui comprend les activités dans le domaine de l'énergie reprises en 2015 au français Alstom, supprimera des emplois administratifs à Baden, ainsi que dans la production à Birr et Oberentfelden.

La facture s'annonce lourde pour les salariés de General Electric (GE). Le groupe prévoit de se serrer la ceinture afin d'économiser 3,5 milliards de dollars jusqu'en 2018.

GE, dont la note de solvabilité financière a été abaissée lundi par l'agence Standard & Poor's, a vu son cours de bourse divisé par deux en un an.

"Cette décision est douloureuse mais indispensable compte tenu des bouleversements du marché de l'énergie, qui se traduisent par une baisse des volumes de vente de produits et de services", a déclaré Russell Stokes, le patron de GE Power, dans des remarques écrites.

"Nous pensons que le marché restera difficile mais ce plan nous positionnera pour 2019 et au-delà", a-t-il ajouté. "Le groupe veut restructurer ses activités européennes". Aucun nouveau projet de centrale électrique n'a été lancé en Allemagne ces dernières années, a remarqué le géant dirigé depuis août dernier par John Flannery, qui a succédé à Jeff Immelt, et sous pression du fonds activiste Trian Fund Management du milliardaire Nelson Peltz.

Au sein des anciennes activités d'Alstom, les suppressions de postes viseraient principalement trois pays, poursuit Les Echos: la Suisse (1.200 à 1.300), l'Allemagne (1.000 à 1.050) et le Royaume-Uni (650-670). Destiné à réduire les coûts, le recentrage, qui s'accompagne de cessions dans les transports, entre autres, pour 20 milliards de dollars (19,7 milliards de francs) doit se solder par la suppression de milliers d'emplois.

Les syndicats de GE ont vivement réagi à ces annonces.

"Nous n'allons pas l'accepter et nous nous battrons (.) pour préserver l'emploi".

Pour mémoire, le géant américain, qui employait fin 2016 pas moins de 295'000 collaborateurs dans le monde, avait annoncé en janvier 2016 une première réorganisation après l'acquisition du pôle énergie d'Alstom.

L'action GE gagnait 0,90% à Wall Street vers 18h10 GMT, alors que le Dow Jones avançait de 0,43% au même moment. Le titre a chuté de 44% depuis le début de l'année, alors que l'indice S&P 500 a progressé de 17,4%.
