Finland -Nestle workers strike over contracts of temporary workers declared illegal -December 29, 2013

Workers of the Turku Nestle baby food facility started a three day strike over the company’s intention to employ its temporary workers through a third party. The workers asked Nestle to take its social responsibility and to hire all workers directly. Nestle has said the decision is a reaction to a lower need to temporary workers in the facility. The company went to court and the Industrial tribunal fined the union branch and workers’ union three times for illegal industrial action. However, the trade union kept the strike justified and ignored the fine continuing the strike on 10, 16 and 20 December 2013.
