Additional Information

Finnish tyre manufacturer Nokian Renkaat has announced up to 120 redundancies from its plant in Nokia. The company is starting mandatory negotiations with employee representatives on the cuts.

Nokian Renkaat is expanding its plant in Russia. As a result, the company is reorganising shifts in its Nokia plant and this will reduce work at the plant currently employing 550 persons. In the future, the Nokia plant will produce tyres mainly for the Nordic markets. Shift changes in Nokia will take place in July 2012.
