Fresh Set of Industrial Strikes on 9-11 December - Finland

Finland's major industrial unions are planning a three-day strike from 12:01 on Monday (9 December) to 23:59 on Wednesday (11 December). The Finnish Forest Industries Federation has announced a six-day lockout from 12 December, unless averted by negotiations.

Advice For Travellers

Big companies, including Nokian Tyres, stainless steel producer Outokumpu, and Neste will be affected by the strike action. The country has suffered large labor disputes in the past months, with last month's two-week strike leading to the resignation of the prime minister this week. Travellers should be prepared for possible transportation disruptions.
