Membership makes sense
Tietoalan toimihenkilöt ry (Association of IT sector employees) bargains the collective labour agreement in the IT service sector and ensures that it is complied with. The nation-wide agreement covers over 42 000 employees.
Tietoala deals with the members financial, social and legal interests which collectively help to improve the quality of life at work. This includes helping to achieve the balance between work and free-time as well as offering continual personal development.
Our members receive training about hot topics in working life. They also have the opportunity to influence the collective agreement through the union.
All the employees regardless of your role, title or degree, within the information service sector can join Tietoalan toimihenkilöt.
In addition to union events we arrange a wide variety of leisure activities, such as visits to a spa, theatre nights and cruises.
Most workplaces where the employees are Tietoala members have a shop steward who represents the union and the employees in discussions with the employer and provides information and help on trade union matters. You can turn to your shop steward in all matters related to your terms of employment.
Also our lawyers provide support for your employment negotiations and advise on the legal aspects of your employment. Your membership fee includes legal expenses, insurance against legal costs arising from employment disputes – note that the legal expenses insurance in your own private comprehensive insurance policy will not cover employment-related disputes.
We also have several holiday cottages around Finland which are well equipped.
