(News from RISI) SCA has wrapped up the discussions it started with employee representatives in November last year regarding possible job cuts at its 80,000tpy Nokia tissue mill in Finland.

As a result, the firm will reduce the headcount at the mill by 69 full-time equivalent positions.

The reductions will be made on a voluntary basis as well as through temporary layoffs, a company spokesperson said.

The Nokia mill employs approximately 250 people. When the discussions started, the firm was considering cutting a maximum of 80 jobs.

The job cuts were prompted by a change to the market situation, notably in Russia.
