Patria honours the negotiation arrangements in force. All employment matters are primarily dealt with between the employee and the manager. This basic relationship is supported by the shop steward and negotiation systems in accordance with the collective agreement. Local agreements are part of

established cooperation. Local agreements are made at different levels of the organisation, depending on the issue.

At Patria, employees are involved in advisory councils, the corporate meeting and the management teams of business units. There are also business unit-specific general meetings and occupational health committee meetings, where matters required by the Act on Co-operation within Undertakings are handled on a regular basis.

Traditional initiatives have been gradually replaced with the Lean operational model, one business unit at a time.
