The strike at UPM’s Finnish mills has been extended again

As no agreement has yet been reached between UPM and the Finnish Paperworkers’ Union Paperiliitto, the strike at UPM’s Finnish pulp and paper mills is to be extended by another two weeks. Paperiliitto announced that the industrial action at the mill will continue until 30 April 2022.

The renewed extension of the strike comes at a time when negotiations between the union and the individual UPM companies are continuing intensively and the mediator has presented a settlement proposal for the negotiations between UPM Pulp and the union, UPM comments on the announcement. The parties are to comment on the conciliator’s proposal by 14 April.
