Union calls on government to negotiate over retirement age

Finland Finland
The Finnish government has announced plans to increase the minimum retirement age to 65 from 63. The JHL public service union has called for the proposals to be withdrawn and for the government to open proper negotiations over the retirement issue. If the change were implemented it would be the third major change for municipal and state workers since their specific retirement rules were changed in 1995. Currently workers can retire any time between 63 and 68.

Unions have set up an online petition as part of their campaign to get the government to withdraw the plans.
