A two-week shutdown in Nokia factory begins on April 6th. This includes both the personal car tire production as well as Nokian Heavy Tyres’ production and is aimed at preventing the spread of COVID-19.
Employee cooperation negotiations concerned a total of 1,630 people and were due to the COVID-19 outbreak, which has increased the uncertainty in the car and tire market.
