Omniva Latvia denies rumors about mass firing

Estonia's state-owned postal services and logistics company Omniva will eliminate 75 jobs in Estonia. The company's representation in Latvia indicated that no redundancies were planned in Latvia, LETA reports February 1.

Collective redundancies will affect people in different positions and departments, plus many of the currently vacant positions will not be filled. The company predicts most of the changes will occur in the first four months of this year.

Madara Aldiņa, head of communications project manager at Omniva in Latvia, said later that the company has not planned to dismiss people in Latvia, and the decisions will only affect employees in Estonia – mainly those related to the provision of universal postal services.

“At the same time, we inform you that overall the company's performance in Latvia in the previous year has been positive and even better than in the past, and the elimination of jobs is related to improving the efficiency of the company's activities in Estonia,” Aldiņa noted.

Omniva is an Estonian state-owned company offering logistics, digital, and international transit services.

The company's turnover in the third quarter of 2023 increased by 8.9% – to EUR 31.4 million – in comparison with the corresponding period, however, the company has been operating with a loss of almost EUR 1.4 million, as opposed to a profit of EUR 26 million in July-September 2022.
