Which union should I choose?

Which union should I choose?

Are you considering joining a trade union? Then you're probably asking yourself the question: Which trade union should I choose? Maybe you're not sure what a trade union is and what the difference is between a trade union and an unemployment insurance fund.

At Min A-kasse, we recommend that you choose a trade union that negotiates your collective agreement and knows your professional area, and that works for your overall conditions and rights as an employee. In the table below you can see the unions we work with and recommend.

What is a collective agreement?

What is a collective agreement?

A collective agreement is a collective agreement between employees and employers at individual workplaces. And it is the collective agreement that determines conditions such as wages, working hours and vacation based on negotiations. All collective agreements are different depending on the profession and industry.

There are unions that negotiate collective agreements, and then there are unions that are not organized or do not enter into collective agreements. These include, for example, Det Faglige Hus, ASE and Krifa.

Traditional trade unions, on the other hand, are associations that are organized by profession and industry. This is why they are called collective bargaining unions. For example, Serviceforbundet, Fængselsforbundet, Dansk Jernbaneforbund and PROSA are examples of collective bargaining unions.
