Shop stewards

The most important task of the shop stewards working at the University of Tampere is to assist employees who are members of trade unions in all problems related to employment contracts.

You can always contact a shop steward and ask about any employment-related issue you have problems with. All contacts with shop stewards are strictly confidential.

Contacting your shop steward does not mean that he or she would automatically start negotiations with the employer on your behalf. The employee who contacts the shop steward always decides for him or herself what, if any, further steps should be taken in his or her matter.

The shop stewards of JUKO, the Public Sector Negotiating Commission, assist employees who are members of Akava, the Confederation of Unions for Professional and Managerial Staff in Finland. Associations of academic employees at the University of Tampere include the University of Tampere chapters of the Finnish Union of Experts in Science, the Finnish Union of University Professors and Tatte, Tampere University Association of Researchers and Teachers. The Union for University Teachers and Researchers in Finland (YLL) also has a chapter at UTA (website in Finnish).

All trade unions represented by JUKO are listed on this website (in Finnish).

The shop stewards of TaYHY represent salaried employees, for example clerical and library staff. TaYHY is a member of the Association of Finnish University and Research Establishment Staff YHL. The shop stewards of TaYHY also help members of other Pardia associations.  A list of the member organisations of Pardia, the Federation of Salaried Employees can be found here.

JHL 660 has its own shop stewards. JHL 660 is a member of the Trade Union for the Public and Welfare Sectors.

The email addresses of the shop stewards are usually firstname.surname@uta.fi unless otherwise mentioned.
