Prime Minister Juha Sipilä on Wednesday specified plans related to holiday bonus in parliament.
According to Sipilä, those sectors which do not comply with any collective bargaining agreements could agree on the holiday bonus as has been the case until now.
“If nothing suits we will follow additional provision in the Holiday Act,” Sipilä said.
The government’s plans to reform the holiday bonus have sparked confusion in unorganised sectors.
The premier pointed out that the details will be specified in the draft and will be prepared with the cooperation of the partners in working life.
According to Sipilä, improvement of competitiveness is not a matter of prestige for the government, but the government has to ensure that results are attained.
Sipilä said the government measures have strong connection to the rights and obligations guaranteed in the constitution. Many of the citizens’ rights can be guaranteed only if public finances are taken care of.
“Exceptional times require exceptional measures, and that is why we cannot just wait,” observed Sipilä.
The labour market organisations on Wednesday started joint negotiations on the work-life crisis package. The talks which have been initiated for the fourth time are expected to last several weeks.
At the same time, the discussion led by the government in parliament on the same issue was incomplete, because the final content of the package is not yet known.
