First strike over, negotiations continue
The first strike threat in the technology industry got realized, as the negotiations concerning the Collective Agreement were not successful. After the strike on 1.-3.2.2023 the negotiations continued on Sunday the 5th of February, but ended without any result. The negotiations continue on Tuesday the 7th of February.
This concerns the senior salaried employees working in the technology industry. For the basic workers a contract was reached during the weekend.
A new strike warning has been issued by the negotiation organisation YTN, acting for the Union of Professional Engineers, including HI. The next strike will take place on 15.-17.2. in about 40 companies, if no contract is reached before that.
Please read more on the YTN web pages!More information about the strike
