Post Trade Unions in Finland

If you consider to work in Finland, you should join a Trade Union. You will pay a monthly membership fee (which is a percentage of your income) but you will also receive many benefits e.g.:
  • Insurance and Travel Discounts
  • Lawyer for work related issues
  • Higher Unemployment Benefits (main reason to join a Union - you need to be a member of a Union for at least 10 months)

You can find a list of Unions in Finland here:
