Around 2,000 jobs at Sanofi (SNY -2.6%) could be at risk as part of the firm's plans to consolidate its French R&D ops, a company union says. Sanofi plays down the fears, but says it's looking to build "research ecosystems" around Paris, Lyon and Strasbourg. Sanofi has already chopped 4,000 jobs in France in the past three years.
