The Service Union United PAM has called for security guards employed by Securitas to stage a strike from 14:00 (local times) on Tuesday, November 6, to 00:00 on Wednesday, November 7. The strike reportedly aims to increase pressure on collective bargaining negotiations, which began in May 2018. While the upcoming work-stoppage is limited to Securitas guards, it is likely to cause transportation and service sector disruptions.


Security guards, represented by Service Union United PAM, launched a three-day strike at Helsinki Airport (HEL) and at train stations across Finland from Wednesday, October 24, through Friday, October 26, to demand increased wages and better working conditions.


Individuals in Finland are advised to monitor the situation, anticipate public transportation disruptions, and avoid any demonstrations as a precaution.
