Telecommunications company Nokia Solutions and Networks Italia is to dismiss 115 employees.

Lay-offs affect mainly the site of Cassina de’ Pecchi, near Milan (109 jobs), but also the sites of Rome (4) and Naples (2).

The decision is part of the Nokia group’s restructuring plan announced in November 2011, that has foreseen a reorientation of business implying the dismissal of about 500 employees in the company’s Italian sites since November 2012. In July 2014 a new mobility procedure was enacted for 154 employees. As the procedure ended in September 2014 without an agreement being reached, the company decided to proceed with 115 dismissals.

Trade unions and workers announced protests asking for the withdrawal of dismissals and accusing the company to have an unilateral behaviour and to favour outsourcing to a relaunch of the Italian sites.
