Join JHL

”Are you a union member?”

If the answer is no, not yet, don't hesitate to grab a shop steward by the sleeve and let him know that you are interested in union membership.

Joining is easy

You can join JHL at your very own workplace. You can also join online, print and fill out a form or visit your nearest regional office.

When you join JHL, you will automatically join one of our 600 local branches.

Don't worry – you don't need to know which local branch you should join, our Membership Services will assign you to the right local branch.

Please contact our Membership Services (Mon–Thu 9 a.m–3 p.m.) if you have any questions about JHL membership, joining JHL or the membership fee: call +358 10 7703 430 or send e-mail

More is more

JHL’s extensive membership ensures that we can excel in what we do. JHL negotiates collective agreements that define the employment terms applied at workplaces. Without them, every employee would be responsible for negotiating their own pay, holidays and benefits.

We all have to pull our own weight to make the joint effort easier. Together we are stronger and able to achieve better results. “Together” requires everyone’s input, so join us because more is more.
