Finnish Nurses Union Announces More Resignations

The Union of Health and Social Care Professionals, Tehy, has responded to initial parliamentary approval of the patient safety bill by announcing almost 4,000 more resignations. The union says that the government's proposed law on patient security weakens prospects for a settlement in the ongoing labour dispute. In an interview with YLE Radio News, Minna Helle, Tehy head of interest promotion, said on Monday morning that the bill will not solve the labour dispute, and will actually encumber negotiations aimed at resolving the issue.
