JHL supports its member candidates

On 2 April, parliamentary elections will be held in Finland. These elections are vital to the Finnish working life. You have the chance to make a difference in the elections. Vote either in advance (22–28 March 2023) or on the actual polling day.

Finland can’t afford to have the status of low-pay employees weakened in any way. Trade Union JHL’s goal is to get a government that will make Finland economically, socially and ecologically sustainable.

In practice, this means that the country’s government and parliament must have an understanding of the status of employees. We want to make an impact to ensure that future decision makers will be people who want to maintain the Finnish welfare society.

Trade Union JHL supports its member candidates who have committed themselves to the union’s values, and also a number of other candidates with a positive attitude to employees. JHL is involved in SAK’s shared campaign named Vaalistaja, the aim of which is to increase voter turnout. A total of EUR 400,000 will be used for these measures.
