Kiky Agreement

Meanwhile, as part of Trade Union Pro, industry employees decided to continue their lockout and stated that there had been no fair agreements on their contracts. Until now, contractual terms were significantly lower for employees and employers refused to remove kiky hours for them. The first scenario can be particularly tricky in a situation where it is not clear which collective agreement is applicable (if any). If you would like to learn more about collective agreements in Finnish employment contracts, please check out my 2018 blog (sorry in Finnish) ????. Scenario N:o 2, it is very clear, but it is a rarity, as I said above. And the one that gives the most grey hair to workers, employers, managers, staff managers, lawyers, courts and labour market organizations is the N:o scenario. 3 – a well-established practice. It is not always easy to know whether a holiday bonus practice is established or not. And it is also quite difficult to evaluate the established practice, because it can be formed in different ways, both collectively and individually. Regular night work is permitted only in the country or prescribed by law, where tasks under a national collective agreement are authorized. However, temporary night work is allowed. Night work can be done regularly in areas where work is typical and in shift work.

The number of consecutive night shifts is limited. “Wage growth follows the general line in the exporting industry and the 24-hour unpaid annual working time is totally eliminated in the agreement,” said Toni Laiho, Industry Director. The working hours to be respected in the employment relationship are generally agreed in the employment contract or collective agreement. From the point of view of the Working Time Act, working hours can be regular hours, overtime or overtime. Overtime and overtime refer to work done outside normal working hours that requires the employee`s consent. Workers are entitled to a higher wage for overtime.
