Eloranta regards proposals by the government for reforming the structures of municipalities and the social and health services as promising

JHL (19.11.2012 - Juhani Artto) Jarkko Eloranta, the President of JHL, characterises the proposals the government published last week to reform the structures of the municipalities and the social and health services as a promising step forward.

"Commitment to prioritising the service provision offered by the municipalities themselves is especially gratifying. Out of the totality of municipal reform, this has been one of the most important elements for JHL."

"Evidence of the strength of public service provision may be witnessed by the fact that several municipalities have stopped outsourcing services in favour of their own. Delivering services that are solely the work of the municipalities themselves has been weighed as the better option both economically and qualitatively."

Eloranta is satisfied also with the proposal that safeguards the present-level status of personnel when municipalities are amalgamated from 2014 to 2017. In addition, amalgamation analysis and proposals will be prepared in cooperation with representatives of the personnel.

"The five-year job guarantee is good for the reform process as a whole. It makes for positive attitudes towards the changes and encourages employees to develop and improve upon their work. It also makes it easier for municipalities to maintain and recruit skilled employees."

The proposal does not offer similar job guarantee for employees of the joint municipal authorities. "One has to take care of their employment relations, too", Eloranta says.
