Trade Union News from Finland
Eloranta elected unanimously to continue as President of JHL

JHL (06.06.2012 - Juhani Artto) Jarkko Eloranta was elected unanimously, on Wednesday, by the Union Council to serve for another 5 years as the union's President. He has held the post since September 2011.

The 120-member Union Council had its first meeting on Wednesday following the election by direct ballot in March this year. The Council meeting continues on Thursday.

The Union Council also elected two Vice Presidents. Teija Asara-Laaksonen once again received the mandate to continue as one of the Vice Presidents alongside Päivi Niemi-Laine, who was also elected to this post.

Eloranta and Niemi-Laine are Social Democrats. Asara-Laaksonen represents the Left Alliance. In the March 2011 direct ballot the Social Democrats received over two thirds of the votes, and candidates on the Left Alliance list mustered almost 30 per cent of the votes. In terms of party allegiance, the Council has 85 Social Democrats and 35 Left Alliance representatives.

Eloranta and Asara-Laaksonen received unanimous support within their own Union Council groups, whereas Niemi-Laine won the majority of votes inside the Social Democratic group when challenging the previous Vice President Pirjo Mäkinen. Niemi-Laine was before this the head of JHL's communications and community relations department.
