On 6 February 2006 the manufacturer of plastic and metal parts for mobile phones, Perlos, started codetermination negotiations in order to cut 600 jobs in Finland. As a result of these negotiations, which were completed on 6th April, Perlos announced to cut 573 jobs. This will take place gradually during the next 12 months. The factory in Nurmijärvi will be closed. The factories in Joensuu, Lehmonharju and Kontiolahti will continue their operation.

Perlos decided to close down the factory in Ylöjärvi already in last June. All the 579 employees were dismissed. This means than Perlos has announced the dismissal of over 1100 employees in one year.
