Brazil Embraer

Police officers try to stop union leaders and Embraer employees as they protest outside the company’s plant after Embraer laid off roughly 4,000 workers in Sao Jose dos Campos, Brazil, Friday, Feb. 27, 2009. Last week, Empresa Brasileira de Aeronautica SA laid off 20 percent of its 21,362 employees worldwide, saying the financial crisis has reduced demand for its midsize passenger and executive jets. A labor court has ordered Embraer to suspend the layoffs until next Thursday, when a conciliation round will be held to see if the company and trade unions can reach an amicable agreement.
