They probably saw it coming, but workers at the STX shipyard in Turku, Finland, have gone on strike to protest layoffs and furloughs in the wake of handing over the Oasis Of The Seas to RCI. Read the details at USA Today

So they're going to go on strike because the company doesn't want to pay 320 people to stand around and do nothing. They even said in the article, there isn't much to do. I don't understand the strike, sorry.

I'm sure if the company said if everyone took a pay cut they'd keep the 320 workers, the strike would end.

I didn't think that they had unions in Finland?
