The conflict between the Finnish Government and the trade unions suspended

The Finnish Government willing to discuss with social partners.

The conflict between the right-wing Government and trade union movement had escalated steadily this autumn. The unions have insisted all along that they do not accept the Government plan to ease individual dismissals in small companies.

After several of industrial action the Government has backed off and proposed a set of measures to the trade unions on which to negotiate. The unions have responded by interrupting the ongoing and planned industrial action measures and said they are ready to negotiate.
