The Central Organisation of Finnish Trade Unions SAK does not plan to reduce exercising an impact on Finnish politics. Social lobbying will be on the organisation’s agenda also during the spring 2011 Parliamentary elections.
The criticism that SAK received on account of its advertising campaign during the 2007 Parliamentary elections failed to shock the organisation. On the contrary, SAK President Lauri Lyly promises more involvement in politics in the future.
“In the build-up to the previous Parliamentary elections there was some fuss about whether SAK should take part in the election campaign dialogue, and if so, in what capacity.
To the disappointment of our critics, however, this stir has not led SAK to opt for keeping a low profile in the coming elections”, Lyly assured the SAK Council on Thursday.
