Press release

Strike in the mechanical forest industry probable, but negotiations still ongoing

The Finnish Forest Industries Federation believes that it is probable that the strike threatening the sawmills and plywood factories in the mechanical forest industry will happen. However, the negotiations are still ongoing to find a solution. If the strike happens it will take two weeks, from 27 January to 9 February 2020. The threatening strike will affect almost all of Finland’s sawn timber and plywood industry. There is also a risk of strike in the paper, paperboard and pulp industries.

Pölkky Oy’s office staff, sales and management will work normally during the possible strike. We strive to deliver the goods to our customers as agreed, but unfortunately the strike also causes problems with delivery. However, our efforts are aimed at minimizing the problems caused by the strike.
