Trade Union JHL is declaring a new ban on overtime and shift swaps for the private social services sector as of 1 pm on 30 May. The ban applies to all work carried out within the private social services sector’s collective agreement. The union wants to speed up reaching an agreement in the collective agreement negotiations that have long been stuck.
The ban applies to the private social services sector’s collective agreement (abbreviated as “YSOS TES” in Finnish”). The ban on overtime and shift swaps started on Tuesday 30 May at 1 pm, and it will end on 14 June at 1 pm.
Why the ban on overtime and shift swaps?
We are speeding up the private social services sector’s collective agreement negotiations. The collective agreement expired on 30 April and the sector is undergoing a period without agreement. Negotiations on a new collective agreement have been conducted since February. So far, the employer party’s proposals and JHL’s goals have been quite far apart. JHL’s goal is for the private social services sector to get pay raises that will level out the unjustified pay gap compared to the public sector.
