Did you now that the holiday bonus is another benefit negotiated by trade unions?

We protect your rights in negotiations concerning salaries, working hours, training policies, annual holidays, safety at work and occupational health care. The value of the collective labour agreement of the trade union, for example, can amount to as much as 20 per cent of your monthly salary. It is impossible to rate the importance of this type of social influence in terms of money only.
