Finland - Work stoppage suspended - June 30, 2017

Shop stewards at state-owned oil company Neste have called off a planned work stoppage to protest government plans to reduce its stake in the firm. The industrial action would have suspended deliveries of fuel for a week. The decision to cancel the demonstration was made after worker representatives met with company officials. At present the state owns some 50.1% of the firm's stock via the Solidium holding company. Unions were protesting against legislative changes that would allow the state to bring down the stake in Neste to 33.4%.
