Delays in mail and freight deliveries may occur across the country this week, after negotiations between Itella and the Transport Workers' Union (AKT) collapsed on Monday evening. AKT announced earlier that roughly 300 employees in the delivery and terminal services of Itella are prepared to join a three-day strike. The dispute stems from a proposal to change the job description of 20 employees.
