Finnish nurse mass resignation averted

NewsRoom Finland, November 19, 2007 Finland's Union of Health and
Social Care Professionals (Tehy) on Monday approved a conciliation
committee's settlement proposal, averting a wide-ranging mass
resignation campaign. Tehy added in a statement the deal consisted of
wage increases ranging from 22 to 28 per cent across the four-year
agreement period. Tehy said further the agreement and the pay increases
applied only to its members and that it was separate from the municipal
collective labour agreement. The separate agreement means Tehy will
have its own shop stewards and negotiation practices at local talks.
