About 100 journalists dismissed this year

In addition, more than a thousand journalists have during the spring in negotiations given up their holiday bonuses for leisure time or without compensation.

Mandatory employer-employee co-operation negotiations to meet the owner’s needs to save in expenses are in progress in several Finnish Media houses. Some houses, like HSS Media and Talentum, are already going through a second round of such negotiations.

In book publishing houses, the first calls to the co-operation negotiations came only in May. At the moment 40 jobs are threatened there, but there is no information how many of the Journalist staff would be involved.
