More strikes to go ahead:
Employees of the City of Helsinki bus company
pile pressure on employer

JHL (19.05.2010 - Juhani Artto) Employees of the City of Helsinki bus company (Helsingin Bussiliikenne Oy) are totally determined in their fight to keep their company-specific collective agreement. Drivers and salaried employees will strike from Thursday morning to Saturday morning. And if needed, they will repeat the strike two weeks later, they announced on Monday.

Helsingin Bussiliikenne Oy is largely responsible for the city's public transport.

On Tuesday, tram and metro drivers working for the city's public transport system decided in favour of a 24-hour support strike. It is set to begin at 4 a.m. on Friday morning. However, if progress is made in negotiations to resolve the dispute at the Helsingin Bussiliikenne Oy, tram and metro drivers will cancel their support strike.

The dispute follows the company's unilateral decision to replace the company-specific collective agreement with the bus traffic national collective agreement. This would probably mean losses for most of the drivers and maintenance workers.
