Paper Industry Workers Walk Off the Job

Nearly 3,000 paper industry workers across Finland began a four-day strike starting Friday. The dispute centres mainly on overtime and compensation for travel time.

Members of the white-collar union Federation of Professional and Managerial Staff (YTN) and the Finnish Forest Industries Federation failed to reach an agreement on labour contracts on Thursday.

New talks have not yet been scheduled. Mid-level workers are calling for a new contract as they have been working without one since September 2009.

YTN also staged a half-day walkout on Friday last week.
