The guards are also included in the political strike on Wednesday
PAM has added security guards to the list of work functions and locations, which are participating in the political strike. As follows, the security guards will participate in the political strike on Wednesday.
PAM’s strike is carried out in specific locations on Wednesday 3 October alongside with several other unions. On Monday, PAM added security guards to the list of work functions that are participating in the political strike, meaning that workers under the security guard collective agremeent also will be affected by the strike, but only in the the locations where the strikes are carried out.
PAM has announched the industrial actions because the Finnish government has not withdrawn its draft law weakening protection against dismissal.
At the moment there are collective agreement negotiations ongoing within the security guard sector. The strike on Wednesday has nothing to do with the negotiations.
PAM’s day-long political strike will start on 3 October at 00:00 and end at midnight the same day or after the end of a work shift that started before midnight.
There is a list of locations and work places affected by the strike here. At the work places mentioned, security guard services are not available on Wednesday.
