Helsinki (27.09.2017 - Heikki Jokinen) Exactly 20 years ago, in August 1997, the Finnish journalist Juhani Artto started up a new news service Trade Union News from Finland. Ever since then it has been publishing hundreds of news items in English, with a particular focus on the Finnish trade union movement and working life issues.
The service is currently being supported by all three Finnish trade union confederations, nine of their member unions and one union which is not a member of any confederation.
Their financial support has enabled the Trade Union News from Finland to continue publishing for all of these 20 years.
These confederations and unions often include our news features on their own web pages, offer links to this news, share it with their international umbrella organisations or mail it to their international contacts.
