This Friday will see another set of strikes at Finland’s ports. The nation’s top three trade unions are fighting the government’s proposed labour reforms.
The boss of the Transport Workers Union (ATK) Marko Piirainen told state broadcaster YLE that Finland will “virtually come to a standstill” on Friday.
The strike is aimed at safeguarding entitlements to paid holidays, overtime pay, and sick leave.
This is the second strike at Finnish ports this year. The nation’s ports have been reporting declining volumes for a number of years.
