Member support and legal services

Our members have access to an extensive array of services that address various aspects of the employment relationship.

We understand that navigating these issues can be complex and challenging. Therefore, we want to emphasize that there are no wrong or inappropriate questions. Some inquiries may simply aim to confirm understanding or seek feedback from your trade union representative.

  • Verifying that your wages are correct based on your education and professional experience.
  • Understanding prevailing wages in your profession and sector, whether in the public sector or the general labour market.
  • Exploring working time regulations, such as the reduction of daily working hours.
  • Obtaining information on remote work arrangements.
  • Clarifying leave entitlement, holidays, and sick leave.
  • Addressing issues related to discrimination based on gender, nationality, or other protected grounds.
  • Understanding how to respond to workplace harassment, knowing your rights, the procedures involved, and what to expect.
  • Navigating the process and implications of institution or company reorganization.
  • Gaining insight into the steps to take, your rights, and obligations in case of employment termination.
  • Understanding retirement and occupational pension rights.

Feel free to approach our experts with any of these concerns or other related matters.
