HKScan to Rationalise Production Operations in Finland

12:05 2018

HKScan, the Nordic meat and food group, is planning to rationalise and adjust its production operations in Finland to improve the profitability and competitiveness of the business. HKScan will initiate statutory negotiations covering the company’s production and logistics personnel in the Vantaa, Forssa, Mikkeli, Paimio and Outokumpu units. The co-operation negotiations do not concern the Rauma unit, which began operations at the end of 2017.

“Our goal is to significantly increase the flexibility and efficiency of our production, thereby strengthening our competitiveness and improving profitability,” says Sami Sivuranta, EVP operations at HKScan.

The cooperation negotiations will be carried out in each location. They do not concern the white-collar tasks in production and logistics, nor professional or managerial duties in the aforementioned locations.

According to the employer’s preliminary estimate, the planned actions may upon their realisation result in the termination of 211 employment contracts and cause other potential changes to employment terms. Potential personnel effects and their allotment will be defined in more detail as the negotiations proceed.
