NoHo Partners launches new co-operation negotiations to adapt its operations to restaurant closures

NoHo Partners Plc will start new negotiations in accordance with the Co-operation Act in order to adjust its operations to the closure measures concerning the restaurant industry published by the Finnish Government today, which will enter into force on March 8, 2021. The aim of the negotiations is to minimize the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The co-operation negotiations cover the entire Group's personnel, i.e. approximately 1,250 people in Finland. In addition, the effects of the restaurant restriction measures are indirectly reflected in the company's approximately 2,000 temporary employees. Negotiations can lead to reduction of jobs and layoffs, part-time and full-time.

- We will take immediate measures to close the restaurants and thereby lay off staff for the duration of the closure. Now begins the final round of the corona battle, which requires endurance from us, our customers, and, above all, from our staff. I believe that with the measures being taken now and the progress of the vaccination pace, we will be able to start the reconstruction phase as planned during the summer and return to a more normal life, says Aku Vikström, CEO of NoHo Partners.
