In the morning, the Vorarlberg employees of the Kika furniture store in Dornbirn receive advice from the trade union and the Workhouse (AK). How things will continue with Kika/Leiner is still quite open, says Vorarlberg party chairman AK Bernhard Heinzle. If the restructuring fails, Dornbirn will also be closed.

Since 8:15 in the morning today, there has been a meeting between the employees, the union and the workroom. There are three consecutive work meetings. The Chamber of Labor and the union have received permission from the workforce to claim the salary of the first fortnight of June through the Insolvency Compensation Fund.

The advice on the site concerns questions about the continued existence of the employment relationship, the financial claims that employees of the insolvent furniture chain Kika / Liner can assert and how, says trade unionist Marcel Geli: “The labor relations continue, how do they continue, who is the new supervisor, what does that mean for claims Finances, how do you secure it?” The goal is to give employees as much security as possible, according to Gilly, and to inform them of what insolvency could mean for their jobs.

Reorganization procedures began on Tuesday

The restructuring process began on Tuesday. With debts of €132m, the bankruptcy of furniture chain Kika/Leiner is the largest corporate bankruptcy so far this year. Measured by approximately 3,300 employees, this is the largest bankruptcy case in the past 10 years.

In Vorarlberg, 65 employees of the Kika site in Dornbirn are affected by the bankruptcy of their company – however, according to the first information after the bankruptcy became known, the site should be one of those that will survive. However, the site in Dornbirn could also be closed if the restructuring fails, according to Vorarlberg party chairman Bernhard Heinzel.
