Industrial Union stages industrial action to oppose Government policies – walkouts in Southwest Finland and Satakunta

The Industrial Union will continue short-term one-hour walkouts on Wednesday 27 September at 14 workplaces in the constituencies of Southwest Finland and Satakunta.

The walkouts are staged in protest by the Industrial Union against the actions planned by the Government. The measures affecting working life included in the Government Programme all target one specific group: employees. The gradation of earnings-related unemployment security alone will cut an average of EUR 350 per month for industrial workers.
