BSH Group announces definitive closure of its Luxembourg branch

On July 3, 2023, the Board of Directors of BSH GmbH announced its intention to definitively close the activities of BSH Luxembourg SA, whose results were negative in 2023, in order to reduce costs in its companies with declining earnings.

BSH Luxembourg SA is a company that has proven to be sustainable over time, and also benefits from a very good collective bargaining agreement. In recent years, the company has reported very good figures in Luxembourg, and even achieved record results during the Covid pandemic. The company had even just opened a store in the heart of the capital, to make itself more accessible and enhance its reputation. The Group’s decision to close its Luxembourg branch for good is therefore all the more surprising.

The staff delegation and the OGBL are shocked by this abrupt announcement and denounce the subsequent dismissals.

No definitive closure date has yet been given. A first meeting between management, the staff delegation and the OGBL will take place on July 5, 2023. Negotiation of a social plan is inevitable. Around 50 employees are affected by the closure.

The staff delegation and the OGBL, the only trade union represented at BSH Luxembourg SA, will do everything in their power to safeguard as many jobs as possible and guarantee the best possible conditions of departure for the employees affected by the dismissals.
