Bus drivers in Helsinki to hold a 24-hour strike on May 2
JHL (18.04.2012 - Juhani Artto)
Bus drivers working for Helsingin Bussiliikenne Oy and organized in the
trade union JHL will be on strike on Wednesday May 2. The 24-hour strike
begins and ends at midnight.
JHL has decided to organize the strike because of the problems JHL's
negotiators have encountered during collective bargaining with the
representatives of Helsingin Bussiliikenne Oy. The employer organization PTY
is not willing to apply the framework agreement, largely approved in the
labour market, and is trying to undermine the working conditions of its
JHL's goal is for the present parties to sign a collective agreement whose
cost impact is based on the framework agreement. The current collective
agreement expires on April 30.
