Prime Minister Juha Sipilä (Centre) has reiterated his steadfast support for local bargaining and reminded that much remains to be done in that respect in Finland.
Sipilä: Finland still has lot to do in terms of local bargaining
“It has to be possible for companies to make agreements internally. That’s a fact today. Finland is well behind its rival countries in terms of local bargaining,” he stated at a seminar organised by the Federation of Finnish Enterprises in Joensuu on Saturday - writes helsinkitimes.fi.
Sipilä stressed that the efforts to promote local bargaining must continue despite the fact that the economic decline has been halted and economic growth is on a relatively stable footing.
“Finland must be more agile and quick in order to overcome the challenges it faces. It’s extremely important to me that this government continues on a path of reform and development until the end of its term in office. We mustn’t throw in the towel, but we have to establish the economy and employment situation on a sustainable footing and balance the public economy.”
