Association of Academics (BHM)

Organisation of 27 trade unions of academics in Iceland

Association of Academics (BHM) is an umbrella organisation for its member-unions.  Each member-union represents workers with particular qualifications or professions. The member-unions preserve the right to negotiate collective agreements for their members but BHM assists the member-unions in many fields and represents  academics and member-unions in common causes.
