Conciliator Leo Suomaa has submitted settlement proposals to five businesses in collective bargaining between UPM’s businesses and the Paperworkers’ Union. The conciliator has asked the parties to state their position on the proposals on April 22, 2022, at 16:00 EEST. The proposals are to be approved or rejected as a whole.
The conciliator now submitted a proposal also for UPM Communication Papers in addition to UPM Pulp, UPM Specialty Papers, UPM Raflatac and UPM Biofuels.
”I hope that the conciliation proposals now given will lead to agreements and we get to start the mills. Prolonging the strike further would not be in anyone’s interest,” says Riitta Savonlahti, Executive Vice President, Human Resources at UPM.
