FinUnions looks after the interests of Finnish workers in the EU
FinUnions is the EU office of Finnish trade union confederations. In Brussels, FinUnions looks after the interests of Finnish workers and represents about 1,7 million members of Finnish confederations. We also inform our Finnish stakeholders about the EU decision making processes related to labour markets.
The cornerstone of the Finnish labour market system are widespread organisation of employees and employers, a strong tradition of bargaining and co-operation, and national incomes policy settlements agreed between the government and both sides of industry. In Finland, three out of four workers belong to the trade union for their industry or occupation.
Finland's trade unions are organised in turn under three national confederations:
SAK, STTK and Akava.
