Job search embargo placed on SOL Personnel Services
PAM's Executive Committee has placed a job search embargo on SOL Personnel Services (SOL Henkilöstöpalvelut Oy) from 2 p.m. on 16 November 2015.
With the embargo PAM is supporting the collective agreement negotiations of the Finnish Post and Logistics Union PAU and condemns the actions of Posti Group Corporation and SOL Personnel Services to employ temporary agency workers for work subject to strike action. PAM's Executive Committee has decided to impose a job search embargo to ensure that job centres do not provide labour for SOL Personnel Services for work at Posti Group Corporation subject to the strike announced by PAU. The embargo also allows unemployed jobseekers to refuse to accept work subject to the strike without consequences for themselves.
The job search embargo applies to all work activities at SOL Personnel Services and begins at 2 p.m. on Monday 16 November. It will continue until SOL Personnel Services ceases to provide labour for work at Posti that is subject to the industrial action or until Posti and PAU reach a negotiated settlement. PAM has notified the embargo to SOL Personnel Services, the National Conciliator, the TE offices and the Private Employment Agencies’ Association HPL.
At its extraordinary meeting on Monday, PAM's Executive Committee also decided that if Posti uses temporary agency workers to perform work subject to the stoppage of the Post and Logistics Union effective from Thursday 19 November, SAK will suspend negotiations on a national labour market package. SAK is only prepared to continue negotiations when Posti stops using temporary labour agencies to break the strike.
