Collective agreement and co-operation with employee associations
Hansel’s collective labour agreement was negotiated with Service Sector Employers PALTA and the Federation of Professional and Managerial Staff (YTN). It is valid until further notice.
PALTA is an employer organisation and member of the Confederation of Finnish Industries EK. The Federation of Professional and Managerial Staff is a private-sector negotiation body of Akava, the Confederation of Unions for Professional and Managerial Staff in Finland, of which the Hansel employee association is a member.
The labour agreement applies to all Hansel personnel, except for the managing director. As specified in the labour agreement, personnel are represented by a workplace steward and his or her deputy, selected from amongst the staff.
The interests of the personnel are also promoted by the personnel association (Hanselin ylemmät toimihenkilöt ry), which is a member of YTN. Roughly one half of Hansel’s personnel are trade union members.
The collective agreement and guidelines for personnel are available on Hansel’s intranet.
