The Finnish cabin crew union (SLSY) on Sunday announced it will not be involved in negotiations to strike a competitiveness deal.
 
The union's board made the decision unanimously on Sunday, said SLSY.
 
The cabin crew union said there are no prerequisites to enter negotiations which would be detrimental to the employees' working conditions and transfer income from employees for the benefit of the employers.
 
SLSY said it implemented its own version of a 'competitive agreement' with national flag carrier Finnair and Blue 1 in the form of savings agreement in the autumn of 2014.
 
“Courtesy of the agreement, the cabin crew overall income has decreased by 7-12 percent and the annual working hours without additional compensation has increased by 180 hours,” said SLSY in a statement.
 
According to the union, the working hour extension which it has already implemented is equivalent to 23 working days.
 
Through the extension included in the competitive agreement, the cabin crew working hours extension would rise to 204 hours in a year which is equivalent to nearly 26 workings days for 8 hours shifts, SLSY said.
