No solution found yet to dispute with forest industry professional and managerial staff in the Finnish forest industry

Press releases |
The Federation of Professional and Managerial Staff YTN has declared a four-day strike, which is due to begin tomorrow morning, Friday 29 October.

The forest industry does not believe that the strike will affect production activities, but it will nevertheless blemish the export-dependent industry’s reputation as a reliable supplier of goods.

In 2009, the forest industry employed more than 3,500 professional and managerial staff members, of whom almost 3,000 worked within the paper industry or in forestry.
