Pöyry has concluded the statutory employee negotiations announced on 14 October at its largest legal unit in Finland, Pöyry Finland Oy.

The estimate includes both operative and non-operative personnel.
Pöyry will make decisions regarding the on-going negotiations only when the negotiations have been concluded with all the legal units covered by the negotiations process. The decisions will then be published.
