Superior's checklist for co-operation procedures

In simple terms, remember at least the following in co-operation negotiations aiming at personnel reductions:

  • Provide the personnel with sufficient information;
  • Listen to personnel's opinions;
  • Abide by the statutory deadlines and specified forms;
  • Remember correct timing in co-operation negotiations; no decisions can be made before the co-operation negotiations have been followed through;
  • Functional relations between the employer and employees facilitate the co-operation process.
