Thousands of workers at Keslog, Inex Partners, Oriola, Tuko Logistics and Lidl warehouses went on strike after the deadline for a collective agreement expired on 30 April 2014. Focus of the dispute between the Finnish Commerce Federation and trade union PAM are working hours and low pay rates for sick leave. Unions also report attempts by some employers to break the strike by asking workers who did not join the strike to work overtime. Some workers in a recruitment company received threats of dismissal if they supported the strike.
