Due to the temporary impact of the COVID-19 pandemia to Teleste’s delivery chain and demand, Teleste initiates co-determination negotiations, in accordance with the Act on Co-operation within Undertakings. The negotiations on possible temporary layoffs concern the entire personnel, approximately 500 employees, in Teleste Oyj and Teleste Information Solutions Oy in Finland and will last for a maximum of 90 days.
