Collective bargaining agreement for Yle

The UJF and the employers federation Service Sector Employers, Palta, reached a negotiated outcome at collective bargaining talks for broadcasting employees at the Finnish Broadcasting Company (Yle). Salaries rise by 3.3% over 27 months, and the extra hours envisaged by the Competitive Pact will be shelved. The agreement also includes, among other things, a new Saturday supplement and other bonus increases. Once the outcome of the negotiations has been approved by the executive bodies of the UJF and Palta, we will provide a more detailed rundown of the agreement. "We thank Yle engaging in these difficult but constructive negotiations," said UJF president Hanne Aho.
