01 July 2019, 15:34 EEST

Uniper’s employee representatives have today sent a letter to Fortum and a number of politicians in Finland and Germany concerning Fortum’s ownership in Uniper.

We understand the concerns of employees. A comprehensive solution that protects the interests of all stakeholders can best be achieved together with Uniper's management. For this reason, we have repeatedly urged the start of formal discussions with the company's new management, and spoken also with the unions and employee representatives. We are in contact with the Supervisory Board of Uniper with a view to resuming such discussions as soon as possible. 

As we have already made clear publicly: our investment in Uniper is about growth and we are interested in the company as a whole.
