Finland - Nurses’ union in overtime ban - May 13, 2010

The TEHY nurses’ union is running an overtime ban to put pressure on municipal employers to allow the union a greater role in collective bargaining. The union is ensuring that patient safety is not jeopardised and says that the action is having an impact on patient waiting times. The current collective agreement was negotiated in 2007 and runs until 2011. A conciliation process has begun on 17 May.
