Finnish handset maker Nokia laid off 900 people at its base in the Hungarian city of Komárom on Tuesday, chairman of the plant's labour council Zoltán László said.
This is the second phase of a previously announced 2,300 layoff at the Hungarian plant. Nokia already had laid off 1,200 people on March 29, of which 854 were Hungarian and 343 Slovak commuters.
Nokia announced in February transferring production from three of its plants, Komárom, Reynosa in Mexico and Salo in Finland, to Asia, laying off about 4,000 workers in the process.
