Last week, Posti announced that it will cut the salaries of its about 700 employees and officials by 30 to 50 percent in a move to transfer the work from an agreement of the Finnish Post and Logistics Union PAU to the Collective Agreement Concerning Delivery Personnel of the Industry Union.
This inspired PAU to go on strike, which has caused some mail delivery delays across the country. The strike is scheduled to end on Wednesday at midnight.
Today, Sirpa Paatero, the minister of local government and ownership steering, said in a press conference that there will be a timeout in the transfer of the agreement.
Negotiations on the terms and agreements will be conducted with all parties present.
The results of the negotiations will be seen in the autumn.
