As part of the recently announced cost-cutting program, Serstech is in the process of reducing staff by six people. The people being let go have been notified and negotiations with the different trade unions have been ongoing for the last ten days. As per Swedish law, staff reductions are pending trade union negotiations and are not in effect until the negotiations are completed.

Today, the negotiations were finalized and the staff members have therefore been formally notified of the termination of their employment contracts. One of the staff members is Johan Diedrichs, who as VP R&D is part of the management team, and his last day with the company will be May 27.

“The combination of reduced staff and the cash from the recent rights issue has made sure we are in good shape, both to weather the current storm and to quickly get up to speed again after it. As the staff is reduced, there is less need for managers and we have therefore taken the step to reduce the number of managers in the company and the management team”, says Serstech CEO Stefan Sandor.
