On Wednesday 22 November 2017 the Finnish Hospitality Association MaRa announced that a lockout affecting ski resorts and programme service companies will take effect on 8–19 December 2017. The labour dispute has arisen because of the conflicting views of the parties regarding the pay settlement. The lockout will affect members of Service Union United PAM.
