JHL: The Early Childhood Education and Care Act amendment does not deal with the real problems and must be redrafted
The new Early Childhood Education and Care Act passed by the Finnish Parliament at the end of June has failed before it got started, says Päivi Niemi-Laine, President of the Trade Union for the Public and Welfare Sectors.
In addition to the local and central government sectors, JHL negotiates collective agreements for the private welfare and well-being services sector.
The Trade Union for the Public and Welfare Sectors JHL is a trade union for people working in the public services and private welfare services sectors.
More is more! Without trade unions and their members, we wouldn’t have common rules for working life. Unions bargain, negotiate, make agreements and oversee them – they work every day in order to ensure fair and respecting treatment of the Finnish workforce. The membership fee for a member of JHL and JHL’s Unemployment Fund is just 1.38% of your taxable earned income.
