Today Iggesund Paperboard began union negotiations to reduce the workforce at Strömsbruk by 20 people. The main reason is a low use of capacity combined with a challenging market situation.
The company’s proposal involves reducing annual production capacity to a level adapted to current market conditions. Approximately 90 people now work for Strömsbruk’s production organisation.
The company aims to achieve the staff cuts with the aid of early retirement plus offers of employment at Iggesund Mill.
