During the last weekend of November, there will be two simultaneous events organised in Helsinki for JHL’s immigrant-origin members. The union is putting more effort into immigrant work and invites all star professionals to join the activities.
Trade Union JHL is financing a new research project that looks into changes in working life along with looking for solutions to the shortage of labour.
