Personnel have much to give when it comes to municipal reform

JHL (09.02.2012 - Juhani Artto) On Wednesday, a big step forward was taken towards comprehensive municipal reform when a task force, made up of civil servants, published its analysis and proposals. According to the task force the number of municipalities should be reduced - by amalgamations - to a maximum of 70 from the present 336.

The most crucial thing in this reform is not the number of municipalities but the safeguarding of services, says Jarkko Eloranta, the President of the Trade Union for the Public and Welfare Sectors.

"Therefore it is vital that the personnel are allowed to play an important role in the reform process. There can never be good services without professional and well-motivated employees. When planning and implementing structural changes one has to pay special attention to the skills, working conditions and rewards of the personnel", Eloranta urges.

"The motivation of the personnel who are engaged in providing services can be secured by consulting them right now at the start…and throughout the entire reform process."
