Helsinki (07.11.1997 - Juhani Artto) SAK wants a consultative body to serve in Europe's central bank with representatives from the trade unions and employer organisations. The body would help in the exchange of information and provide a forum for discussions of employment, price stability and social development in the Member States.

SAK has approached the Finnish government asking it to promote the idea in European negotiations taking place in November at the employment summit conference in Luxemburg.
