Dolmetscherstreik in Finnland

Hanna / 17.11.2021

Interpreters in Finland will stop work for three minutes at 10.20 on Thursday 25 November 2021. They will do so in protest at poor working conditions and public-sector tenders based almost entirely on price criteria. 

The interpreters’ work stoppage on 25 November will be significant in its reach, uniting all kinds of interpreters, both employees and the self-employed. This is the first such joint protest to bring together all interpreters. Spoken language, sign language, speech impairment and speech-to-text interpreters will join the protest.
