Akt Collective Agreement

The worker can agree with the employer, that is.dem tem­po­rary employ­ment com­pa­nies, on work­ing con­di­tions that are not fixed by col­lec­tive agree­ments. The con­di­tions of employ­ment of the tem­po­rary agency worker may there­fore be par­tially dif­fer­ent from those of the work­ers of the con­tracted under­tak­ing (e.g. B noon or tele­phone ser­vices). Nego­ti­a­tions between the Finnish Media Fed­er­a­tion and the indus­trial union on the terms and con­di­tions of employ­ment of sort­ing staff in the par­cel and e-commerce sec­tor will start on 1 Novem­ber 2019. The Finnish Postal and Logis­tics Union PAU will not be a con­tract­ing party. An offi­cial of the indus­trial union elected by the staff will mon­i­tor the inter­ests of the work­ers in the imple­men­ta­tion of the changes to the col­lec­tive agree­ments. In Fin­land, the min­i­mum wages of a posted worker also include allowances related to work­ing time and annual leave pro­vi­sions. These may be based on the law and/or the col­lec­tive agree­ment. It is pos­si­ble to agree on cer­tain dif­fer­ent con­di­tions in col­lec­tive agree­ments than in the law under the same con­di­tions. It is there­fore impor­tant to take into account both the pro­vi­sions of the law and the col­lec­tive agreement.

The report of the Min­istry of Econ­omy and Employ­ment on the notion of “cov­er­age of col­lec­tive agree­ments in 2014″ (Ahti­ainen, 2016) is a rel­e­vant national source. The report con­tains another cal­cu­la­tion of the orga­ni­za­tional den­sity of employ­ers, rang­ing from 73% (2008) and from 75% in 2014 to 62.6% (2008) and 66.2% in 2014. These lat­ter fig­ures are com­pa­ra­ble to those reported by the ECS in the table below. As far as trade unions are con­cerned, the col­lec­tive bar­gain­ing sys­tem is coor­di­nated both at dif­fer­ent lev­els of col­lec­tive agree­ments and hor­i­zon­tally: actors in the same sec­tor com­mu­ni­cate between the enter­prise level, branches and cen­tral organ­i­sa­tions to pro­mote their sec­toral inter­ests. Hor­i­zon­tal coor­di­na­tion is also impor­tant: coop­er­a­tion between the dif­fer­ent sec­tors is strong within highly cen­tralised organ­i­sa­tions at national level. How­ever, in the 2017–2018 col­lec­tive bar­gain­ing, cross-sectoral coor­di­na­tion was more dif­fi­cult, as no agree­ment was nego­ti­ated at cen­tral level before sec­toral nego­ti­a­tions. If you have any ques­tions to ask our trusted agents (union rep­re­sen­ta­tion in the work­place) about the employ­ment con­tract, we have seven Finnair del­e­gates who answer your ques­tions. The local agree­ment means, for exam­ple, that employ­ers and work­ers can con­clude an agree­ment bind­ing on both par­ties on cer­tain work­ing and employ­ment con­di­tions. How­ever, col­lec­tive agree­ments may pro­vide for restric­tions on local agree­ments; There­fore, an appro­pri­ate pro­ce­dure must be ensured before the con­clu­sion of a local agree­ment. Local Gov­ern­ment Employ­ers (KT) is an organ­i­sa­tion of inter­est to local employ­ers rep­re­sent­ing all Finnish local author­i­ties and municipalities.

It nego­ti­ates and con­cludes col­lec­tive agree­ments for munic­i­pal­i­ties and asso­ci­a­tions of munic­i­pal­i­ties with 419,000 employ­ees. The Finnish Indus­try Asso­ci­a­tion (EC) is the lead­ing eco­nomic organ­i­sa­tion and rep­re­sents the entire pri­vate sec­tor and com­pa­nies of all sizes. In recent years, EK has lost two renowned mem­ber organ­i­sa­tions: the Finnish For­est Indus­try Asso­ci­a­tion (Met­sä­te­ol­lisuus), which with­drew in 2016 and claimed to need more tar­geted pro­mo­tion of inter­ests, and the Road Trans­port Employ­ers‘ Asso­ci­a­tion (ALT) left in 2017 because EK no longer par­tic­i­pated in col­lec­tive bargaining.…
