“Pro is once again in breach of the Act on Mediation in Labour Disputes and will have to shoulder the responsibility for its unlawful conduct. It appears that, as a rule, Pro will more readily choose illegal action over compliance with the law,” says Jari Forss, Deputy Director General of the Finnish Forest Industries Federation.
Yesterday, Pro failed to comply with industrial action legislation when salaried employees working at Stora Enso’s Kotka and Anjalakoski service centres initiated an unlawful strike. The law requires notification of any industrial action to be served at least 14 days in advance.
