Leaders of the labour market organisations still consider the local labour agreements as the main issue in social contract negotiations.
The leaders expressed the view upon their arrival at Eteläranta on Sunday as they met to iron out key issues related to labour market reform. 
The labour market organisations are expected to present alternatives to the government-proposed package, the so-called coercive measures.
Calling himself a realist, the chair of the Central Organisation of Finnish Trade Unions (SAK), Lauri Lyly said many questions remain unresolved.
On the other hand, Sture Fjäder, the president of the Trade Union Confederation for Professionals (Akava) believes a deal is likely to be struck in the following days.
The social contract can progress only if a consensus on the local labour agreement is reached. 
One key issue which remains unresolved is how employee working conditions could be made flexible when the employing company is in crisis.
The leaders afterwards said the meeting had progressed well but no decision had been made. The boards of the respective labour market organisations are scheduled to meet today (Monday).
