Lay-Offs, Redundancies Imminent at Nokia’s Finland Plant
Nokian Tyres reports that on May 10 it entered into statutory negotiations affecting around 70 employees at its facility in Nokia, Finland. In a press statement, the tyre maker says approximately ten office employees and 60 blue-collar employees are involved in “adjustment measures” that include changing some of the rotating shift lay-offs initiated in January 2009 to full lay-offs, effective until further notice. Nokian also intends to terminate some employment contracts, it says.
These measures are being implemented, says Nokian, “with the aim of adjusting the Nokia plant’s production and supporting functions resources to the stabilised order base and shift system.”
