No strike in the mechanical forest and joinery industries

TU (21.09.2010 - Juhani Artto) Salaried employees in the mechanical forest and joinery industries will not now be going on strike. New collective agreements were reached on Thursday just a few hours prior to the planned strike of about 500 salaried employees around the country.

The agreements cover almost 3,000 salaried employees at sawmills, furniture and kitchen furniture factories and in the veneer, window and door industries. The agreements in question came about through negotiations between the Union of Salaried Employees TU and the respective employer associations.

In the mechanical forest industry salaries are to be raised in September by 1 per cent. In addition a 0.4 per cent increase will be implemented at the local level. Next spring everyone will receive a 0.8 per cent pay hike and locally a 0.4 per cent rise will be given. The agreement is in force about two years.

In the joinery industry the general and individual salary increases add up to a 1.5 per cent rise when taken together for this year and a further 1.4 per cent increase next autumn. The agreement is valid two years.

As a new benefit both agreements include a paid six-day period of paternity leave.
