Railway industry train drivers belonging to the two member organizations of the Union will not come to work on Thursday and Friday, says the Railway Union in a report published on Wednesday in the bulletin. The protest concerns locomotive drivers belonging to the Helsinki Locomotive Drivers ‘Department and the Riihimäki Locomotive Drivers’ Association.
According to a statement from the Union for the Railway Industry, the protest is a protest against VR’s breach of contract and unilateral change in established working conditions.
