Strikes | Orpo about the reforms that are being tried to be overthrown by strikes: We have the power of attorney

Strikes cause “absolutely enormous damage” to the Finnish economy, said the Prime Minister Petteri Orpo (cook) on Tuesday. He said he hopes no good businesses or jobs will be lost now.

The trade unions oppose Orpo’s government labor market reforms with broad political on strike again this week.

“This is going in an even more difficult direction,” Orpo said.

According to him, the government has the power and responsibility to make the reforms it deems necessary.

In Orpo’s opinion, the deadlock is made worse by the opposition, which, according to him, does not come with proposals to fix the problems, only opposition. Sdp has said that it will ask an interim question if the government does not cancel its labor market measures.

“It is quite clear that they are now making a further mess of this situation by opposing the government’s policy in general,” Orpo said.

Orphan described the trade union movement’s opposition to the government’s actions as an “extra-parliamentary influence attempt”. It is about “the core issues of democracy”, he said.

“Who has the power and responsibility for Finland, Finland’s well-being and its security?” The orphan asked.

Trade union movement and the left-wing opposition have accused the governing parties of not revealing their broad reform intentions before last spring’s parliamentary elections.

According to Orpo, the coalition told openly what it intends to do if it comes to power. After that, negotiations were held with other parties sharing the same picture of the situation and a government program was created.

“We have the responsibility and authority and we will take them forward.”

HS’s Tuesday published report according to the coalition, the government’s policy corresponds in many respects to what the party promised before the elections.

The coalition openly pushed for, for example, large cuts in social security and the promotion of local agreements. Among other things, these are exactly what the trade unions are now opposing with their political strikes.

At least before the elections, the coalition did not publicly push for all the working life registrations of the government program.

For example, changing the first day of sick leave to unpaid was not on the table before the election. However, the first day’s pay can still be agreed upon in collective agreements in the future.

Nor did the coalition talk about easing dismissals and deadlines in its programs.

Strengthening the so-called export model of wage negotiations by limiting the activities of the national conciliator was also a new item in the government program.

Instead the second largest government party, the Basic Finns, did not push for the changes that the government is now promoting during the elections. The party, on the contrary, stated in the survey of the employee organization SAK, among other things, that it opposes restricting the right to strike.

However, it is quite common that when forming a government, the largest governing parties make compromises on issues that are important to each other.
