The collective agreement negotiations continued in Finland
The collective agreement negotiations which started in the spring continued on 24 August 2010 in good spirit. The negotiating parties are the AV translation companies Pre-Text and SDI Media Helsinki and their freelance translators.
The aim of the negotiations is to improve the translators’ working conditions and fees, so that the undercutting of prices, which has long plagued the branch, is stopped. Broadcast Text International, the biggest AV translation company in Finland, opted out of the negotiations in May.
