TLMI Urges Swift Resolution of Finnish Paper Mill Strike


Staff member
The North American Tag & Label Manufacturers Institute (TLMI), on behalf of tag & label converters, their connected suppliers & end users, urge all parties to come to an immediate resolution of the ongoing strikes at numerous UPM Paper Mills in Finland—globally significant suppliers of label-making materials.

The strikes—now over 3 months long—have crippled a global supply chain, and is impacting the ability to secure sufficient paper & labels for customers. Consumers around the world depend on labels for buying decisions, advice on medication use, food ingredients, allergy warnings, storage requirements and a host of other important on-package instructions. The continued disruption of the supply of papers used in labels will continue to contribute to outages for consumers until the strikes are resolved.

TLMI requests that regulatory authorities intervene so production at the impacted UPM locations swiftly resume.
