Patria starts employee co-operation negotiations in its Land Business Unit concerning all employees both in Hämeenlinna and Tampere. Negotiations will be started due to the productional and financial reasons, as the order backlog is decreasing heavily due to the finalisation of the current delivery projects but also reorganisation of the operations will be considered in order to ensure competitiveness and lean administration. Goal is to find alternative measures to redundancies such as reorganising work, adjusting terms of employment and lay-offs. Measures are estimated to affect at most 140 employees.

Details and actions will be determined during the negotiations.

The key areas in Land Business Unit include armoured wheeled vehicles, mortar systems and related life cycle support services.  Business Unit employs 342 people in Hämeenlinna and Tampere.
