Nokia and Ericsson employees begin national strike

Two multinational Scandinavian telecoms companies have something else in common: firing wantonly and disrespecting commitments.

Today, employees in Italy for the phone makers Nokia and Ericsson began their strike in response to layoffs. Ericsson has completed the collective redundancy procedure, with a further 67 redundant workers added to 182 terminated in July. This morning, Thursday, the national event will begins in Rome and will end at the Ministry of Economic Development.

Nokia workers have organized a four-hour walkout in response to the Sept. 28 decisio by the company not to extend the Extraordinary Integration Fund and fired another 128 workers.
