To the employer
The dramatic changes during the past few years in the fields of ICT and shipbuilding have hit hard the regions of Southwest Finland, Northern Ostrobothnia, Uusimaa and Pirkanmaa. The impacts of the adjustment measures by Nokia, STX Finland and their subcontractors have extended to the industries and the labour market in a way which resulted in Finland seeking assistance from the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund (EGF) to manage structural change.
