Nokia to lay off 162 workers in Spain

Thursday 14 March 2019 | 11:49 CET | News

Nokia’s Spanish subsidiary has told unions that it plans to lay off a total of 162 workers throughout the country, equivalent to around 18 percent of its total workforce of 915 employees, reports business daily Expansion, citing trade union UGT. The company said the collective dismissal (ERE) is necessary for productive reasons and to meet targets but UGT rejected the move as unjustified following the redundancy procedures carried out in recent years

“Despite using the argument of robotisation, Nokia Spain’s management has not presented any industrial or business project that justifies in the medium term the destruction of quality employment in Spain,” said the union.
