Trade Union JHL's most important task is to negotiate its members' terms and conditions of employment. Collective agreements determine pay, working hours, the right to annual holiday, and sick-time pay, among other things.
Collective agreements for the public sectors apply to people working for municipalities, for the Finnish state and in the church sector.
The collective agreements for private sectors determine the terms and conditions of employment in municipal and state companies and enterprises, associations and foundations and in many social services sector companies, among others.
