Mediators in Nurses’ labour dispute propose salary harmonisation

Mediators in Nurses’ labour dispute propose salary harmonisation

Finland: Nurses’ dispute mediators Elina Pylkkänen, undersecretary of state at the Ministry of Labour and Economic Affairs, and Martti Hetemäki, former state secretary of the Ministry of Finance, suggested in an interview with newspaper Helsingin Sanomat(siirryt toiseen palveluun) that reforming the wage system would be a possible solution for the sector.

The mediators argued that the nursing unions Super and Tehy as well the municipal employers’ group (KT) should all agree on reforming the sector’s wage system. The money for the reform would be obtained from the salary programme and the coordination of salaries, referred to as salary harmonisation.
