Opetusalan Ammattijärjestö

The biggest member organization in Akava

Trade unions have a long tradition in Finland, and an influential role in the community. Over 70 per cent of Finns belong to one of the country’s 70 or so trade unions.
Three central organizations represent the employee side in the Finnish labour market: SAK (Central Organisation of Finnish Trade Unions), STTK (The Finnish Confederation of Salaried Emp­loyees) and Akava (Confederation of Unions for Professional and Managerial Staff in Finland).
OAJ is the biggest member union of Akava, the cent­ral federation for highly educated employees and professionals.
Akava has more than 30 member unions and over 0,5 million members in total.
