Week-long strike at Ruukki’s Raahe unit

At 0600 hours on 1 December 2009, around 400 members of the Union of Salaried Employees TU went on strike, after negotiations between the Federation of Finnish Technology Industries and TU foundered. The week-long strike will end on 8 December at 6am and affects Ruukki’s operations based at the Raahe Works. The strike will stop hot-rolling production and the cutting lines at the Raahe Steel Works. Consequently, the manufacture of these products at the works and delivery to customers and the company’s own processing functions will be at a standstill at the start of the week. There is also a disruption in order processing. Despite the strike, all functions essential to the personnel, processes and environmental safety are being maintained.
