Finland - Metal and industrial workers to strike in Tampere region - April 30, 2017

Some 1,500 metal and industrial workers in the Tampere area were striking on 20 April 2017 to protest government measures that they say are eroding workers’ standing of living. The industrial action affected 16 companies in the Tampere region. The trade union organising the industrial action claimed that the government seems to have adopted the ideological goal of undermining the status of workers and the trade union movement.
