Workers are not required to join a union on a given job. However, most sectors of activity with an average trade union organization of 70% are subject to a collective agreement. An agreement does not prohibit higher wages and better social benefits, but sets a legal minimum, much like a minimum wage. In addition, a national agreement on income policy is often, but not always, reached, including all trade unions, employers` organisations and the Finnish government.  In Finland, collective agreements are universal. This means that a collective agreement in a sector of activity becomes a universal legal minimum for everyone`s employment contract, whether unionized or not. For this condition to apply, half of the workers in this sector must be unionized and therefore support the agreement.

In certain situations, you may request paid leave for special circumstances that are not covered by labour law. Although this category of vacation is not part of labour law, it is often part of a CAO, employment contract or company regulation. A collective labour agreement provides workers with an instrument to work with the union to ensure fair wages and better working conditions. A fixed-term contract has a start date and an end date. The contract expires on the agreed date, with the employer informing you in writing at least one month before the end date if the contract is renewed. We strongly recommend that you ensure that you receive a contract in writing, although an oral agreement is also valid in the Netherlands. . .
