Negotiations in ski resort sector broken off – work stoppage at six ski resorts

Service Union United PAM and the Finnish Hospitality Association MaRa conducted unsuccessful pay negotiations in October. After this there have been collective agreement negotiations, which PAM broke off today. Today PAM’s Executive Committee decided on a limited work stoppage at six ski resorts.

PAM’s President Annika Rönni-Sällinen considers that without the threat of industrial action no further progress will be made in the negotiations.

"The ski resort sector has been without an agreement since the beginning of November.  Based on the employers’ proposals, there were no longer conditions for negotiations and therefore we broke them off. Employees in the ski resort sector have deserved a pay rise and that’s why we are speeding up the negotiations with a limited work stoppage", says Rönni-Sällinen.
