The machine is not yet able to estimate the exact number of redundancies.
ELEVATORS and Kone, which manufactures escalators, has completed its co-operation negotiations concerning Finland. As a result of the co-determination negotiations, about 100 jobs will be terminated in Finland. At the same time, Kone will open about 90 new jobs in Finland.
According to the company, the possible need for dismissal is not yet known, as new jobs will be created and old ones will cease at the same time. The company is now mapping out how well the new jobs are suitable for those whose job ends. After this work, the number of redundancies will also become clear.
Co-operation negotiations began in March. At that time, the company estimated the need for reductions to be 120 jobs. A total of 650 employees were involved in the negotiations in Finland.
The negotiations aimed, among other things, at harmonizing global business units and support functions and strengthening the company’s competitiveness. The changes affect the Machine’s head office functions. Most of them are located in Finland.
The research, development and plant operations of the machine have not been subject to the planned changes.
The machine has a total of about 62,000 employees in more than 60 countries. In Finland, the company has about 2,700 employees.
