My employer is threatening to cut my hours if I go on strike. What should I do?

If a strike is based on a union decision, it is binding on the members. The Criminal Code of Finland prohibits work discrimination, which means that employees must not be placed in an unequal position due to their participation in a strike. Contact your shop steward if your employer threatens you.

Each threat will be taken seriously and investigated. Do not remain alone in the situation.

JHL’s Executive Committee may also decide on an embargo or a boycott against a company that recruits temporary/external workforce for the duration of a strike, pressures employees to come to work during the strike, changes shifts that have been announced earlier due to a strike or threatens to place employees in an unequal position depending on whether they participate in the strike or not.
