As a member of Finansforbundet (Financial Services Union Denmark), you can be given local counselling if posted abroad, or obtaining permanent employment in the financial sector in Finland, Iceland, Norway or Sweden. Local counselling guarantees you specialised advice on collective agreements, legislation and taxation working abroad. If you are posted abroad, the only requirement is that you retain your membership of the Finansforbundet.
The Finansforbundet also helps employees working in the Nordic finance sector who continue their membership of a local trade union while working in Denmark during a posting. The scheme is based on an agreement with the other members of the Nordic Financial Unions (NFU), working to strengthen and coordinate the work of Nordic members within the European and global finance sector.
If permanently employed
If you are permanently employed, we recommend that you join a local trade union. If you do so from the start, the agreement gives you the right to local counselling and help immediately from the local union. Remember that you can always retain passive membership of the Finansforbundet at no cost.
You are always welcome to contact the Finansforbundet at 32 96 46 00 if you have questions concerning your options for local counselling in the Nordics.
