Trade union JHL has welcomed the health reform passed by the Parliament, but added it still has concerns over the situation of employees. The reform that covers social welfare and health care services will see all services are to be delivered by five regional providers, while municipalities retain their responsibility for services and care costs. In the course of the reform many municipal employees are likely to end up with a new employer. JHL has said it is happy with the five year employment guarantee that has been written into the legislation, but will be closely monitoring pay and working conditions.
