  • Stora Enso offered compensation and training to workers it laid off in India - Finnwatch
    little mention of termination of operations in the international guidelines for corporate responsibility The information provided by Stora Enso on the lack of profitability in the Indian packaging industry seems well justified the unit that produced packages lost a major international buyer when Nokia s factory in India closed down Stora Enso shared information on the economic difficulties at its India based factory consistently and before making the decision to close the factory the company seemed to make a concerted effort to maintain operations by implementing changes to the factory s production process and looking into selling the factory to another company The factory s economic downhill has also been acknowledged as the reason for the closure in the termination agreement between Stora Enso Inpac and the factory s trade union However problems were observed in the way Stora Enso shared information with its workers Workers were only told about the closure the same day as the media was informed Negotiations with the trade union on procedures related to the closure were only initiated two days after the notification of closure was given Workers said that they had already been concerned about their jobs when the factory s other unit was shut down at the turn of 2014 2015 However at that time supervisors had assured that no one needed to be worried about their jobs The OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises stipulate that when an enterprise considers the implementation of changes in its operations which will have major employment effects in particular where the closure of an entity involves collective lay offs or dismissals the enterprise must provide reasonable notice of such changes to representatives of the workers in its employment and their organisations and where appropriate to the relevant authorities Stora Enso made the decision to shut down the factory unilaterally and workers were not given the opportunity to present other options for improving the profitability of operations The closure of the Stora Enso Inpac factory was also not discussed in Stora Enso s European Works Council EWC In its previous dialogue with Stora Enso Finnwatch criticised the company for the fact that a representative from the Indian factory was not been represented in the EWC The OECD s guidelines stipulate that an enterprise must co operate with worker representatives and appropriate government authorities so as to mitigate adverse effects to the maximum extent Stora Enso deserves recognition for actively negotiating with the factory s trade union on severance pay for workers An agreement was reached between the factory and the trade union in August 2015 All the workers who signed the termination agreement were paid a severance payment made up of different benefits totalling at least 250 000 rupees approximately 3 260 euros This sum is more than a two year salary for production workers Depending on the number of years a worker had served the company the sum rose considerably in some cases totalling to 750 000 rupees approximately 9 780 euros There were over 40
