As well as ongoing negotiations, PAM will also start new negotiations with Palta this week.

Last week PAM and the employers’ representative Real Estate Employers approved a new collective agreement for the facility services sector. 

This week PAM will be negotiating working conditions for many different sectors with Service Sector Employers.

Today Monday 24 February negotiations will continue on working conditions for removal services, which began a week ago on Monday 17 February. Negotiations in the cinema sector will also continue today Monday. Both of these negotiations will be between PAM and Palta.

Negotiations will also continue on a collective agreement for the customer service and telemarketing sector. PAM and Palta will next return to this agreement on Wednesday 26 February. Pay rises were discussed in last week’s negotiations. 

This week PAM and Palta will also reconvene to discuss new working conditions at Veikkaus and Alko. The Veikkaus negotiations will continue on Thursday 27 February. PAM and the Finnish Electrical Workers’ Union decided to break off collective agreement negotiations for Veikkaus employees with the employers’ federation, Palta, in week 6, because they were no longer making progress. Negotiations on working conditions for Alko employees will next be held on Wednesday 26 February. 

New negotiations will also begin this week between PAM and Palta. Today Monday PAM will begin collective agreement negotiations for the photofinishing sector, household appliances and equipment servicing as well as service machines and bingo.
