Lorry traffic disrupted as pay negotiations stall

The labour union Transport has announced a strike for the 24th of April, and the employers have scheduled a lock-out, over pay negotiations.

News agency TT spoke to the head of the Transportation Industry Association, which opposes the union's pay goal. Peter Jeppsson says that 70-80 percent of all domestic traffic will stand still, which means that the effect will be felt already by the end of this week, as companies start to plan to cover their supplies.

Currently the union aims to raise the workers' wages by more than the 6.8 percent over three years that the industrial unions have already settled for.
