In 2013 union members were issued with a new press card without a photo. Non-photo press cards are valid for two years, and new ones are sent to members before their old cards expire.
The card carries the bus and coach Matkahuolto sign, which allows certain discounts on tickets. The card also has the Turva insurance logo, and as such is proof of insurance cover. When you are issued with you card, you will receive info about insurance cover for members.
You can also order a press card that carries your photo (see below).
International press card supplements UJF press card with photo.
This card is also the IFJ International Press Card. The IFJ logo is shown on the new UJF card that carries the holder’s photo. It is only valid when shown together with the UJF press card.
Use your press card responsibly
Your press card allows you to certain benefits, such as discounts and free entrance to certain events, regardless of whether you are on a work assignment. The UJF does not approve of the use of the press card for benefits unrelated to work.
