Trade Union Pro continues its absurd strike action at Suomen Kotidata – strike number seven starts

Pro has today announced a new month-long strike to take place from 25 November to 22 December. According to Pro, the terms of employment applied in the company are the reason for the strike. What makes it absurd is that the strike targets a company in a dispute that was already resolved in September. Back then, the Labour Court unanimously stated that Kotidata may apply the terms of the Collective Agreement for the Commercial Sector. According to Pro’s demands, the strikes would end if Kotidata would agree to give all employees a pay increase of approximately EUR 500. This groundless demand is supported through strikes that risk losing jobs.
