TU resumed bargaining in the technology industry

TU (16.08.2010) Collective bargaining in the technology industry was resumed on August 9 by the Union of Salaried Employees TU and its employer counterpart (The Federation of Professional and Managerial Staff YTN). The negotiations focus on pay rises. In spring TU announced that it was aiming at an increase of EUR100 per month.

And in the
se weeks the employer federation is holding parallel negotiations on pay rises with The Metalworkers' Union, The Electrical Workers' Union and The Federation of Professional and Managerial Staff (YTN).

Prior to the annual leave period employer side offered an 0.5 per cent pay
rise, the emphasis being on local level and company-specific solutions. At that time TU and the other employee organizations rejected the offer anticipating a more suitable bargaining environment to evolve by autumn.

TU
's collective agreement with The Federation of Finnish Technology
Industries concerns 33,000 salaried employees. The agreement is in force
until the end of September 2012. The annual pay rises, due to be implemented each autumn, should always be agreed upon in April-May.

If the pay negotiations fail, the agreement may be cancelled by
each year by the end of May. However, this year the cancellation deadline has been agreed for  the end of September.
