Response from Central Chamber of Commerce Board to CEO and AKT Social Media Dispute.

On Monday, the Central Chamber of Commerce issued a statement in response to a message from CEO Juho Romakkaniemi that had caused controversy with the AKT union. This was an unusual move for the organization, as they typically remain quiet in labor market disputes. The statement addressed the crisis-ridden labor market situation following Romakkaniemi’s message and emphasized the importance of respecting employees’ statutory rights and freedoms to decide whether or not to join unions.

The disagreement began when Romakkaniemi urged SAK members to resign from their union and join the General Unemployment Fund instead. This message sparked a reaction from Ismo Kokko of the AKT union, who announced the termination of banking cooperation with the OP Group, where Romakkaniemi is connected as CEO. Kokko suggested that Romakkaniemi was being instructed by Timo Ritakallio, CEO of the OP Group and chairman of the Central Chamber of Commerce.

The board of the Central Chamber of Commerce stressed that they needed a culture of agreement in order to move forward constructively in resolving labor disputes for a stable future for Finland’s economy. They did not directly address the social media dispute between Romakkaniemi and Kokko but expressed a desire to find solutions that are beneficial for both parties involved.

Timo Ritakallio also commented on the situation, emphasizing that finding a solution that builds trust in Finland’s labor market and supports economic growth is essential. He highlighted that both perspectives need to be considered in order to create a more stable future for Finland.

During his tenure since 2017, Juho Romakkaniemi has been working towards increasing his organization’s role in social debates and changing its public image.
