Thousands in Finnish forest industry strike

Finnish union representatives say that some 3,000 workers in the forest industry have begun a four-day strike after talks broke down between unions and management in a labor dispute.
The forest industries federation said the walkout by managerial and professional staff that began Friday likely would not cause production disruptions unless the strike continues after Tuesday.
The union of professional and managerial staff says it is planning new action if no agreement is reached in the dispute that hinges on overtime pay and travel expenses.
The national conciliator has not announced a date for a resumption in negotiations.
