Finland: Right-Wing Government Attacks Collective Agreements & Plans To Unilaterally Cut Pay & Benefits

Finland’s new right-wing coalition government has announced plans to unilaterally cut pay and benefits negotiated through collective bargaining.
The proposed legislation violates basic trade union rights, conventions of the ILO and international and European human rights instruments.

The changes include substantial reductions in compensation for overtime, weekend and night work, sick pay, the elimination of two paid national holidays and a significant reduction in annual leave.

Unions estimate that the impact would be a 4-6% reduction in pay, with the impact falling hardest on the most vulnerable, including part-time and women workers.
