Municipal employees are ready to consider
continuation of the framework agreement


JHL (22.08.2012 - Juhani Artto) Union organizations in the municipal sector support continuation of the framework agreement, signed in November 2011. The agreement formed the basis for the realisation of collective agreements that cover all employees in the public sector and over 91 per cent of the wage and salaried employees in the private sector. The collective agreement in respect of municipal employees is due to expire on 28 February 2014.

According to the union organizations the collective agreements applying the framework agreement have offered a degree of predictability to the economy as a whole and supported balanced development of wage and salaried employees' incomes. In addition, the framework agreement enabled the fulfilment of agreement-specific goals.

"The framework agreement has also improved the quality of working life", affirm the Presidents of the municipal sector bargaining organizations.

They are now ready to start listing issues that should be negotiated in centralized negotiations. They emphasize that the new framework has to guarantee balanced development of wages and salaries and lead to further progress in working life.

The Presidents regard the role of refining skills and proactive personnel planning as very significant in the midst of structural changes taking place in the municipalities. It makes the personnel more committed to the changes and makes it possible to avoid bad or ill-considered solutions that risk the provision of services. It also helps to maintain the level of skills of the personnel.
