The Social Chamber of Spain's Audiencia Nacional (National High Court) has rejected a complaint lodged by the CCOO trade union over the redundancy plan affecting 1,059 workers arising from the merger of Vodafone Spain and Ono. The court ruled that the redundancies were "lawful" and that the companies had sufficient economic, productive and organisational reasons to justify their actions, according to sources with knowledge of the decision cited by El Economista.
