No pay settlement in hospitality sector – Hotel, restaurant and leisure services collective agreements terminate

New negotiations on pay and terms of employment for workers and supervisors in the industry start in early March.

Service Union Untied PAM and the employers’ association MaRa’s views on the size of the pay increase were too far apart to reach a pay settlement within the set timeframe for pay negotiations. Therefore, PAM has terminated the collective agreement to end on 31 March 2023.

“The ingredients for a settlement on pay only weren’t there, so now we start preparing for negotiations on the entire collective agreements”, says PAM President Annika Rönni-Sällinen.

This means negotiations are not only about pay, but everything in the collective agreements, such as working hours and days off.
