The Icelandic Confederation of University Graduates (BHM) is an umbrella organisation for its member-unions. Each member-union represents workers with particular qualifications or within a specific profession. The unions preserve the right to negotiate collective agreements for their members but BHM assists them in many fields and represents academics and member unions in common causes.
