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.
“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.
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.”
