In a dispute over a proposed wage cut (of 500 euro for some parts of the workforce) drivers and terminal workers of the national postal carrier Itella have organised a walk-out. 300 members of the AKT transport workers’ union took part in the industrial action that effectively guaranteed that no cargo belonging to Itella or its subcontractors was handled at Finnish ports. The employers called the strike illegal and excessive.
