Sony Mobile sheds 575 staff, 400 consultants in Lund

Tuesday 2 June 2015 | 12:28 CET | News
Sony Mobile is making 575 employees redundant and is also shedding about 400 consultants, according to an article on regional newspaper Sydsvenskan's website. This follows negotiations between the company and trade unions, it added. This means almost half of the current staff will go, leaving around 1,200 workers in Lund. Sony Mobile spokeswoman said pretty much every department and role will be affected, but the company did not want to go into details. She said both administrative staff and developers would go.
