About two weeks ago Guess announced to its employees that the company wants to move their product, development and design divisions from Osmannoro, near Florence, to Lugano, in Switzerland, as mentioned in local newspapers.

The 90 people involved in these functions were asked to quit their jobs and move to the Swiss city, despite the fact that for many of them this solution is not an easy one to handle.

In the past days, strikes, public demonstrations and protests happened inside the company and in Florence city.

As reported by local press, the company explained that the change is part of an industrial restructuring process the entire fashion business is presently facing.

On 1st April, Roberta Gandolfi, representative of Guess Europe in Switzerland, met local labor union representatives of the Guess Florence Company.
