The program was held online from Monday, February 7 to Friday, February 11.

① Report on a labor-management dispute case in the Finnish forest industry

From February 7 to 11, a total of four participants (including two women) from two countries, Italy and Finland, successfully completed the program.

JILAF has been implementing its programs through "online programs" via the Internet in place of training programs that invite overseas trainees to Japan due to the restrictions on entry into Japan caused by the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
The online program consisted of five days, with two days spent watching on-demand videos on labor-management relations and labor policy and three days of real-time online sessions where participants exchanged opinions with JILAF officers and followed lectures.
At the session for hearing about the labor situation held on the fourth day, attendees deepened their understanding of the labor situation through case reports from Italy on recent labor disputes in multinational companies and from Finland on labor disputes in the medical and forest industries.
