More layoffs at Hallberg-Rassy?
Sweden’s Hallberg-Rassy may have to lay off another 45 workers, leaving the company with 100 employees at its main factory in Ellös and 45 workers at the mould factory in Kungshamn.
The company and the workers’ union are currently in discussion over the fate of 99 employees who have already been forewarned of layoffs.
“The workers’ representatives are unwilling to look at the employees’ competence,” says Magnus Rassy, managing director of Hallberg-Rassy.
“We’ve not agreed on how many people whose competence the company really needs to meet the production plan for the year to come. The result may be that we have to hire external companies to get the right competence.”
The situation needs to be solved as soon as possible and Magnus Rassy, says the employees’ representatives, are to blame.
“We’ll solve this, but this situation takes so much energy that we need for other things.”
