Finland - New government makes commitment on job security and productivity - June 22, 2011

The JHL public sector union has welcomed some of the elements of the new government’s programme. It is pleased about the commitment to offer a new job security agreement in the municipal sector when the current agreement expires in 2013. JHL president Tuire Santamäki-Vuori also welcomed the decision to end the productivity scheme in the state sector, which according to the union badly failed. Yet, she criticised the tightening financing of welfare services and the weak approach to the current legislative deficiencies concerning temporary employees, agency labour and the self-employed.
