Finland -Plans to hire strike-breakers -August 22, 2013

The airline Finnair is planning to hire 200 cabin crew members from a temporary work agency in Spain. According to the company CEO, Pekka Vauramo, they could be used ‘possibly to replace the company staff in special situations’. The trade unions suspect that the company contemplates recruiting strike-breakers in advance of negotiations and that this means in practice that there is a willingness to use foreign staff as strike-breakers if the need arises. The collective agreement concerning Finnair cabin crew is due to end this October and a new round of bargaining is expected.
