Finland: a new agreement for the technology, electronics, mechanical, and metallurgy industry sets the tone for negotiations across the other sectors
Planet Labor, 9 January 2020, n°11578 -

Following an agreement between the industry union (Teollisuusliitonet) and technology sector employers (Teknologiateollisuuteen), employees have secured a 3.3% salary increase distributed over 25 months. The agreement that runs from 04 January 2020 to 30 November 2021 signals an end to the sector’s competitiveness pact that the previous government had implemented, and which notably had featured an additional 24 hours of unpaid work (c.f. article No. 9709).
