Employee negotiations started in June at Suominen Flexibles’ Ikaalinen plant have been concluded. The negotiations were started due to a temporary decline in the demand for products of Suominen Ikamer and to secure the competitiveness of the plant.
As a result of the negotiations, lay-offs estimated to total 38 days involving the entire personnel, approximately 60 people, will be implemented during the autumn. The first 10-day period will be held between September and October. Possible other lay-off periods will be decided separately.
