Finland -Union members willing to retire later -December 03, 2013

Members of the trade union confederation Akava are prepared to remain longer in working life than before. Akava has been examining attitudes towards retirement for some time. Surveys aimed at sounding out members as to where they stand on this issue have been carried out in 2007, 2010 and 2013. The planned age for retirement has been moving steadily upward among Akava members. Right now it stands at 63.9 years. There has been a 0.7 year trajectory since 2010. And from 2007 the increase has been 2.7 years. Among non-Akava members the planned retirement age was on average 63 years. Even though the readiness to work longer than before has been on the rise 65% of Akava members and 75% of other wage and salary earners are unwilling to accept that the minimum old-age retirement age should be raised to 65 years.
