Union membership is a guarantee of safety. Members use their power of cooperation to push for the best possible conditions and rights. A good trade union provides personal advice and service, from employment contracts to retirement. It also provides access to a variety of benefits and financial support and is a solid sponsor when needed.
Fræðagarður makes collective agreements on behalf of its members. Institutional and company contracts are also drawn up and advice is given on the drafting of employment contracts. This way, the union ensures that conditions and rights are always in line with the best available.
Membership of Fræðagarður opens the possibility of various grants. Fræðagarður’s participation in BHM is an important factor in this context. Health and welfare funds provide a wide range of grants and a strong safety net, while the vocational training funds support continuous and continuing education.
