The UJF has appointed a new director of services to help the union upgrade its organisational work and assistance to its membership. Simon Huldén, executive director at Specia, the trade union of experts and managerial professionals, will take up the post in December.
“With the recruitment of a director of services and the accompanying organisational renewal, the union will be able to more actively support its membership in the different situations of changing working life,” said union president Hanne Aho.
The union has already been providing career guidance to members, and in January 2017 the Mediakunta cooperative will start operating, providing a range of services to UJF members.
“Service development is important for increasing communication between the union, member organisations and membership,” said Huldén. “Services based on the needs of union members will also bring more value for membership subs.”
Huldén will start work as the union’s director of services at the beginning of December
