The article deals with the layoff at Dow Chemical. The company could make 180 workers at its Porto Marghera complex in Italy redundant before the Christmas holidays, an Italian trade union source said last week. The company was likely to go ahead with the job cuts if the Italian authorities failed to sign a deal to revive the chemical industry in the region by the end of the year.
