After failed negotiations to solve Posti’s labor dispute on Sunday evening, the Transport Workers’ Union AKT’s sympathy strike will begin at 03:00 in the morning on Monday, November 25 and ends the following Tuesday morning at 03:00.

The strike will cause significant disruptions to bus services in the HSL area. Information about how many bus drivers will be working and which routes might be operating will not be available until the strike begins.

According to the current information, commuter trains, the metro, trams and the Suomenlinna ferry will run as usual. Passengers are advised to use rail services instead of buses where possible and to allow extra time for their journeys. Rail services may be more congested than usual on Monday.

The strike affects bus services procured by HSL, which means that it would not affect U-line buses. U-line buses are bus services whose routes extend to outside the HSL area. The buses have U signs on the front.

Ticket inspectors and VR’s conductors will be assisting passengers at major bus terminals on Monday morning.
