New collective agreement for the employees in the technology industry has been approved
The negotiation result was reached last Friday morning in negotiations lead by National Conciliator Anu Sajavaara. Both parties have approved the result during weekend. As a result, the strikes announced by the Industrial Union that would have started on 8 February and 15 February, have subsided. The overtime ban set by the Industrial Union has also been lifted.
The conciliation of the labor disputes concerning salaried and senior salaried employees in the technology industry is still ongoing.

In addition, salaries shall be adjusted no later than on 1 April 2023 or at the start of the pay period beginning soonest thereafter by a general increase of 3,5 %.
If no local salary settlement is found for year 2024, the salary will be adjusted no later than on 1 February 2024 or at the start of the pay period beginning soonest thereafter by a general increase of 2,0 % and company- or workplace-specific element, amounting to 0,5 %.
