Finland -Trade union says labour reforms are hurting women -November 06, 2015

Trade union JHL has said the planned labour reforms, reported in last month’s newsletter, are disproportionately affecting women. The plans, which are debated currently with the social partners, include an increase in fixed term contracts and restrictions on the right to public childcare. JHL said the reforms are pushing workers with care responsibilities, which are still predominantly women, out of the labour force.
