Valio Initiates Change Negotiations Affecting 1,170 Employees Due to Economic Challenges
The company cites various factors, including production and economic challenges, as reasons for the changes. The negotiations, set to commence on January 30, may involve potential dismissals and significant alterations to the terms and conditions of employment, affecting approximately 130 employees with additional changes impacting up to 135 individuals.

Valio, with around 4,300 employees, is a key player in the dairy industry, and the move reflects its response to a challenging operating environment. The dairy giant emphasizes the need for profitable business operations to ensure the vitality of dairy farms, supporting the long-term continuity of Finnish food production and contributing to job creation and livelihoods across Finland. The change negotiations are a strategic response to address operational challenges and maintain the company's sustainability in the face of economic uncertainties.
