Nokian Tyres Completes Employee Cooperation Negotiations In Finland

The employee cooperation negotiations concerning all personnel based in Finland at Nokian Tyres plc, Nokian Heavy Tyres Ltd, Vianor Holding Oy and Vianor Oy have ended. As a result, all 1,630 employees are planned to be temporarily laid off. The duration of the temporary lay-offs varies depending on the work assignment, up to a maximum of 90 days per person during this year. In Vianor Oy, the timing is extended until February 2021.

A two-week shutdown at the Nokia factory begins on April 6th. This includes both the personal car tyre 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 tyre market.
