Luke institute to cut staff

Luke, the Natural Resources Institute of Finland, has announced it is to begin negotiations with staff in preparation for an estimated 210 redundancies at the centre.

In a statement on 21 April, Luke said that discussions would be initiated with 725 staff members. The employees likely to be affected by redundancies are those in administrative and technical roles, Luke said.

The negotiations are part of a restructuring process to increase the effectiveness of support services, Luke said. The government is expected to cut Luke’s funding by about €15 million between 2014 and 2016, leading to plans for Luke to make efficiency savings as well as attracting more external funding.
