Metropolia University of Applied Sciences will begin co-operation negotiations concerning the entire staff on 1 December 2015. The aim of the negotiations is to find solutions for securing the high quality, profitability and competitiveness of Metropolia. The negotiations may lead to the redundancy, transfer to part-time work or temporary layoff of a maximum of 80 employees. The negotiations will be started due to production-related and financial reasons.
Metropolia has implemented extensive changes for several years and its results have been developing in a positive direction. Despite the good results, Metropolia's financial position will remain strained in the coming years because its funding will be cut by 11 million euros by 2018.
“We have so far increased the efficiency of our operations with the upcoming solutions concerning our campuses and premises, among other things, but we still need new means and bold initiatives for securing our future competitiveness,” says Riitta Konkola, Managing Director, President of Metropolia.
