Negotiations concerning temporary lay-offs in the Finnish operations ended
SSAB started to explore flexibility measures related to staffing adjustments at the end of August and initiated employer-employee negotiations in its Finnish operations concerning potential temporary lay-offs of a maximum of 90 days. The negotiations have now ended and there will be a temporary lay-off need averaging 2-3 weeks in 2019.
The temporary layoffs concern SSAB Europe, which has the largest sites in Raahe and Hämeenlinna, as well as Group functions. The exact allocation of layoffs will be determined over the coming weeks. Any need for termporary lay-offs in early 2020 will be assessed separately.
