Strike threat for ore mines cancelled

Thu, 01/16/2020 - 15:43
The strike threat reported by the Industrial Union for ore mines has been cancelled. The Federation of Finnish Technology Industries and the Industrial Union have reached agreement on the new collective agreement for ore mines. Approximately 2,000 employees are within the scope of the settlement.

The cost effect of the settlement is the same as that of the collective agreement concluded by the Federation of Finnish Technology Industries. The extension of working time by 24 hours will no longer be employed. In this agreement, the extension was also included in a protocol that could be terminated, in the same way as in the agreement for technology industry employees.

The Industrial Union had announced a strike affecting ore mines that would have begun on 27 January. With the conclusion of the agreement, the threat of strike was cancelled, and the overtime ban started by the Industrial Union ended.
