STTK: Nokia has to bear economic responsibility for the dismissed

STTK (08.02.2012) Nokia's announcement that it was axing about thousand jobs is a direct deathblow to the mobile telephone assembly industry in Finland, says the Finnish Confederation of Professionals STTK.

"The information Nokia published on February 8 forces us to find some means for preserving the competitiveness of Finnish industry in the international market", states STTK's expert in industrial policy, Antti Aarnio.

"Finland has to work out a strategy on how to develop industrial structures and policies. There is need that people can trust and believe in the ability of Finnish industry to employ people in the future."

STTK's affiliated member union Pro demands that the government creates, without delay, an industrial policy strategy on how to create new jobs in the industry sector and on how to safeguard that these jobs remain in Finland. STTK supports this initiative.

"Those who are now losing their jobs must be assisted by all means possible in finding new employment. Nokia has to support them not just economically, but also by providing vocational training and by helping those who wish to establish new companies, Aarnio insists.
