Finland -New information channel for municipal workers -January 15, 2013

The trade union JHL opened a special information exchange channel on their web pages for their members working in the municipal sector. It collects information on what kind of plans the municipalities have regarding the reorganising of their services. The idea is to involve union activists in gathering relevant and useful information, which can then be made available to other activists. Topic headings to be perused are such as outsourcing, privatisation, social enterprises, service vouchers and buying back municipal services.
