Follow the collective bargaining round
PAM is negotiating minimum working conditions for around 400 000 workers in the service sector.
PAM is this spring negotiating collective agreements for the private service sector. The collective bargaining round means that PAM negotiates together with the employer organisation about terms and conditions, which are setting the minimum in each sector. Such are salaries and wages, working hours, sick pay, pay for work on mid-week holidays etc. for workers.
The collective agreements for the retail sector and facilities services sector are expiring at the end January. At the end of March the agreements for the hotel, restaurant and leisure industry runs out. Last, but not least, there is the private security sector collective agreement, which runs out at the end of April.
All in all 400,000 workers are covered by collective agreements. The number is high due to the fact that the majority of PAM's collective agreements are genreally binding. By this, many service sector workers are covered by the same minimum terms and conditions, regardless of wether the employer belongs to the employers' federation or not.
During week 4 PAM is negotiating terms and conditions for employment within:
- Facilities services sector
- Veikkaus - the Finnish gaming company
- Customer service and telemarketing
- Technical workers at the Finnish National Opera and Ballet
- Golf sector
