About Finansförbundet

Finansförbundet is Sweden’s largest trade union for financial employees.

All of the workers within the financial sector can be members of Finansförbundet irrespective of their post, education background or level of pay. Finansförbundet has 32 500 members, is a politically independent trade union and is one of the trade unions included in the central organisation TCO (The Swedish Confederation of Professional Employees)[1]. We have members in the following areas:

  • Banks
  • Credit Brokers
  • Mortgage companies
  • Stock brokers
  • A large variety of financial institutions in the financial sector 

Our values

Finansförbundet believe that all human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. We believe in everyone’s capacity to learn, contribute with his or her experiences and knowledge, as well as, creating its own believes, take responsibility and show respect for others.

A prerequisite for achieving this is the members’ participation within the democratic process. Finansförbundet’s aim is to develop and improve employment conditions, promote equality and diversity, endorse the individual freedom, develop and strengthen the solidarity between workers. For Finansförbundet, both trade union density and the number of members within different occupation roles are fundamental for our legitimacy and strength.
