According to the Collective Agreement Act, the terms and conditions included in the collective agreement are binding on our member companies. Due to the large coverage of the agreements and the generally binding rule in the Employment Contracts Act, new collective agreements also bind non-affiliated employers in the technology industry. Ministry of Social Affairs and Health will later confirm if collective agreements for consulting engineering and information technology will be generally binding or not.
Our collective agreements include deviations from Finnish employment legislation and include several options to deviate from the rules on collective agreement through agreements that are specific to the company or the workplace.
Because of the labour peace obligation, industrial action against the terms and conditions laid down in collective agreements is forbidden during the collective agreement period.
