A workplace shop steward is a trusted and knowledgeable employee trained by the trade union.
Often there is an issue at the workplace, but for some reason it can't be solved. Trade union JHL’s solution to this is working together. With the help of organising methods, employees set up an organisation for protection of interests, where each member has a role.
The occupational safety and health representative represents all of the workplace’s employees in OSH issues.
Organising brings the trade union closer to employees. It also gives a chance to work together for a better working life. The union offers support for more effective workplace activities and for daily life questions: How is the union visible and how does it operate on a local level, how do we solve the challenges related to work, and how is JHL a stronger protector of interests at workplaces?
JHL is the best union for young people! JHL’s youth activities are meant for all of the union's members who are under 35. The union organises youth and student activities both nationally and regionally.
Being active doesn't require any special assignment. Even ordinary members can be active.
