Glaston adjusts its operations in Finland

Post Time:Mar 04,2009Classify:Company NewsView:268

On 3 March 2009, Glaston Finland Oy has initiated negotiations in accordance with the Act on Co-operation within Undertakings, on adjusting the operations of its Heat Treatment business area to the prevailing market situation, because the adjustment measures agreed in late 2008 were insufficient in light of the orders received during recent months.

The entire personnel of Glaston Finland are in the sphere of the negotiations, except its service business, totalling approximately 200 persons. The additional temporary lay-off requirement is estimated at 10 weeks, and redundancies for maximum 10 employees are estimated. The final level of the programme will be determined in negotiations with personnel representatives.

Glaston Finland Oy’s previous employer –employee co-operation negotiations were completed in December 2008. As a result of these negotiations, the company decided to temporary lay off its entire personnel for a period of 4 to 8 weeks during the winter and spring of 2009. Sales, service and product development personnel were unaffected by the temporary lay-offs. Currently, the employment contracts of 14 persons have been terminated due to production and financial reasons.

Co-operation negotiations within Glaston’s glass processing unit, Tamglass Glass Processing, will be completed on Thursday, 5 March 2009, and the results will be communicated during the same day.

Presently, Glaston employs approximately 1,500 staff, of which some 400 work in Finland.
