Roland's translation was essentially accurate.  The workers are being  
placed on "Chomage Partiel," = "Partial Unemployment," which is like  
a furlough.  Two periods are planned, 1-5 June and 26-31 December,  
and another, 20-24 December, might be added if more cancellations  
take place.  The Unions are NOT happy about this. 

The last paragraph states that predicted production for 1993 had been  
for 191 aircraft (all models; the article is unclear whether this  
includes the ATR42/72, which is also built at Toulouse; it probably  
does not include the A321), 224 in 1994, and 230 in 1995.  Latest  
plans call for production of 140 aicraft in 1993, 14 (? a typo for  
140?) in 1994, and 179 in 1995.
