The Finnish government has given its approval to the social contract negotiated between SAK, EK, Akava and STTK. According to PM Juha Sipilä, the agreement is historical. The PM believes that the contract helps in changing Finland’s direction. There is also a chance that the government gives up the further savings measures mentioned in the government programme. If the contract takes effect, Finland could catch Sweden and improve its position in relation to Germany. The contract could bring work for 35,000 people.
