How to change your trade union
If you want to switch to Finansförbundet, you must contact your current trade union and make a request to leave. It’s important that there is no gap between membership of your former union and the new one. You will also need to inform A-kassan (the Swedish unemployment fund) of this change.
- Contact your current union and request to leave in writing.
- Ask them what the procedure is for transferring to another union.
- Complete the application for membership of Finansförbundet. In the form, you can state on which date you want to become a member, the change always made at the end of a month.
Remember to also change a-kassa
- Withdrawal from the a-kassa, a Swedish unemployment insurance fund, must be made in writing.
