UniCredit SpA has agreed with Italian unions on 1,200 voluntary job cuts and 725 new hires, Italian banking union FABI said on Thursday.

The Italian lender's plan foresees 950 voluntary cuts through early retirements, partly offset by 475 new hires. An additional 250 voluntary cuts have been agreed to, fully offset by 250 new arrivals.

"It's an agreement of great importance on the theme of generational turnover and employment balancing," according to the FABI union.

UniCredit will also make 1,000 temporary apprenticeship contracts permanent.
