Finland is going to ask the European Union to support laid-off Nokia employees. 
 
The Ministry of Employment and the Economy said they are preparing the application, which will be submitted in the autumn.
 
“EU support enables customisation of more efficient services for the dismissed employees. The Commission has previously provided support for Nokia and Microsoft redundancies. We are hopeful with regards to the new application,” said Justice and Labour Minister Jari Lindström in a statement.
 
The application processing will take about half a year. Finland has several ongoing projects to support the large-scale redundancies that have occurred in recent years.
 
Nokia recently announced plans to cut more than 1,300 jobs in Espoo, Tampere and Oulu.
