Description

At the end of November 2012, Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN) announced to close its Bruchsal site. The closure affects 650 employees who will be made redundant. The latest job cuts follow a bigger restructuring programme, which was initially announced at the beginning of 2012. At that time the telecommunications equipment provider NSN stated to cut 2,900 jobs in Germany (see here).

Talks with employee representatives are to be held.
