Loimu supports you during the co-operation negotiations

During the coronavirus epidemic, co-operation negotiations on lay-offs or temporary lay-offs have increased. Collective bargaining must take place in companies with at least 20 regular employees. In the co-operation negotiations, the union is your support. You will receive information and personal support from Loimu in connection with the co-operation negotiations. If you are uncertain about your situation, contact the union!
