RAUTE prepares new agreement on flexible working hour
Published on : Wednesday, May 13, 2020
Raute has recently concluded a local agreement with the blue collar workers at the plant concerning implementation of at most 80 hours’ flexibility in working hours. The agreement is valid for one year. Additionally has been agreed that white collar employees working in Technology services can be transferred to work in the production while the maintenance work cannot be done because of the travelling and other restrictions caused by the Covid -19 pandemic.
It was also agreed that simultaneously with the above-mentioned agreements coming into force, the temporary layoffs in the production, announced on August 22, 2019, will be terminated on April 30, 2020.
The good order book in the production enables termination of the temporary layoffs at least till the end of 2020. Despite the level of the order book, potential problems in the component or material availability may cause need for adaptation. However, they estimate that the agreed 80-hours’ flexibility in working hours is sufficient to cover that kind of fluctuations.
