The chair of the Vihreä liitto (Green League) parliamentary group Outi Alanko-Kahiluoto has accused the Sipilä led three-party alliance government of having the tendency to draft proposal which undermine equality.

The government envisaged Employment Contracts Act was sharply criticised by the lawmakers of opposition parties Suomen Sosialidemokraattinen Puolue (Social Democratic Party of Finland), Vihreä liitto and Vasemmistoliitto (Left Alliance).

The lawmakers were particularly troubled by the government’s plan which proposes fixed-term contracts to be made on annual basis. Up to three employment contracts could be made within a year.

“The purpose of permanent employment contracts as to root out unjustified fixed-term employment,” said Left Alliance MP Aino-Kaisa Pekonen.

Unjustified fixed-term employment is also feared to lead to deterioration of labour productivity.

“There is a risk of falling productivity if continuously training employee,” said SDP lawmaker Tarja Filatov.
