Metso to Start Employee Negotiations at Fabrics Plant
Helsinki, Finland, 20 October 2010 -- Metso Fabrics PMC Inc’s Juankoski plant personnel groups’ representatives have today been given a negotiation proposal, in accordance with the Employee Negotiations' Act, due to economic and production reasons.

The employee negotiations will discuss the measures needed to adjust the operations to the present production situation. The order amounts for forming fabrics manufactured in Juankoski have not reached the level they had before the economic downturn. This is mainly the result of the capacity decrease in the Finnish paper industry.

The negotiations apply to all functions at Juankoski plant. The need for personnel reduction is estimated to be 25 persons. In addition, temporary lay-offs and part-time work are considered as adjustment measures. The negotiations are expected to end in December 2010.

In addition to personnel reductions, the operations will be made more efficient and cost efficiency will be improved through other measures, to secure competitiveness and operations in the future. Possible outsourcing of certain functions also will be studied.

The amount of personnel at the Juankoski plant is about 260.
