Dispute at teleoperator DNA resolved

TU (03.02.2010) TU and the employer association TIKLI have agreed upon a resolution that will immediately bring an end to the strikes and the support strikes.

On Sunday, TU and the Employers' Association TIKLI were able to find common ground in the dispute at the teleoperator DNA. The parties have agreed not to publish the content of the agreement.

The dispute concerned DNA's plan to terminate its personnel programme that had been in place since 2007. The programme has given, in the event of DNA (or part of it) being sold to a new owner, job security and for those who would be given notice compensation of half a year's pay. In addition, the programme has included an agreement on subcontracting.

TU and DNA disagreed also on what collective agreement should be applied to salaried employees at DNA. According to TU the company wanted to apply, for part of the salaried employees, a collective agreement that was, for the employer, cheaper than the agreement signed with TU.

To put pressure on the employer side some one thousand DNA salaried employees began a strike on December 10. It covered customer services, trouble shooting, DNA shops and several other DNA functions. The following day, about 400 salaried employees of GoExcellent, a DNA subcontractor, began a support strike. On December 16, about 60 salaried employees of Eniro Sentraali, another DNA subcontractor, joined the support strike.

On December 18, TU announced a blockade of DNA.

The new agreement between TU and TIKLI means an immediate end to all this industrial action. All employees are due to return to work no later than Thursday February 4.
