Metso Outotec completes employee cooperation negotiations in Finland

Metso Outotec Corporation press release October 1, 2020 at 1.00 PM local time

The co-operation negotiations relating to the restructuring of Metso Outotec’s operations have ended. When the negotiations started on July 8, 2020, the estimated need for reduction was a maximum of 280 permanent jobs. As a result of the negotiations, Metso Outotec will reduce a total of 254 jobs in Finland. Of these, 87 are permanent jobs through redundancies and the rest through other arrangements, such as non-renewal of fixed-term contracts, retirement arrangements and voluntary resignations.

Job reductions due to the restructuring of operations will affect nearly all Metso Outotec’s locations in Finland.

The measures relate to the merger of Metso’s Minerals business and Outotec. The objective of the new organizational model is to enable efficient business operations for Metso Outotec, respond to customer needs, reduce overlaps of the two previous organizations and meet the set synergy targets.
