Children rights organisation Plan Suomi has announced the initiation of co-determination negotiations.
 
The negotiations are following the government proposed cuts in development cooperation funds which affects 50 employees of the organisation and has put 20 man-years under threat.
 
The organisation said the whole of its development programmes would be left hanging and leaving around 180,000 children outside the assistance bracket.
 
According to Plan Suomi, the government has decided to slash the aid extended to development organisations by 43 percent without steps and transition period.
 
According to Plan Suomi Secretary General Ossi Heinänen, the move by the government is irresponsible and unfair and the consequences hit mostly the world’s poorest children.
 
The cuts are, however, not directed towards the organisation's sponsors supported development programmes.
 
The religious and politically non-affiliated Plan Suomi claims to be one of the world’s largest and oldest children rights organisations.
