Finland -Central agreement concluded -September 06, 2013

The trade union confederations SAK, STTK and Akava reached a central agreement on wages and salaries with the employers’ organisations on Friday 30 August. The agreement offers a modest rise in pay across the board over the next two years. All monthly salaries will be raised by a flat rate of €20 beginning four months after the agreement is valid. A year later salaries will be increased by 0.4%. The agreement covers two years with an option to extend it for a third year. The fate of the national agreement is now in the hands of the different unions and employer organisations that have until 25 October to bargain for new collective agreements within their branches. If there are enough unions and branches willing to accept the national agreement, it will become valid.
