Strikes in season
Apart from the ginger bread and mulled wine this year's holiday season seems to have a new thing that is trendy and that is having a strike.
Not like going bowling but as in walk out from your job.
The financial industry is planning to begin their next week, as they want their fair share of the companies' profits. The union says that the cash machines will be running and that the wages and pension are to be paid to their due accounts despite their possible strike if the transfers are made before hand. Remains to see the result.
Last week the aviation baggage personnel walked out of their jobs at Helsinki airport in protest with it resulting in flights being cancelled and a luggage clog up with thousands of suitcases still to be sorted out .
The employees of one of the mobile phone operator walked out today and the IT sector have been negotiating for some time now about a pay rise.
Maybe this is a new way to get more time off before Christmas for them who have jobs as they are envious of the others who have been being laid off and made redundant?
