Common Goals Needed for Baltic Sea Area
Baltic Sea area work in NFU needs to find key persons, key arguments and common goals, Executive Forum concluded yesterday.
The challenge is to find the right persons to bring forward the trade union agenda, the right arguments to convince employees of the value of membership, and common goals for the corporate unions within NFU. This was the main conclusions from the discussions at the first NFU Executive Forum meeting in 2010, which took place in Stockholm Thursday June 17.
We need to be present in the countries in question, and really work on how we can harness and amplify the domestic trade union interest that is growing, albeit slowly, the meeting further agreed. The participants also discussed the central challenge regarding how to build local trade union permanency after the first steps have been taken.
NFU Executive Forum meetings are intended for executive representatives from company unions in Nordic transnational banks and insurance companies within the NFU umbrella. The aim is to discuss strategic developments, sector changes, challenges, activities, and so forth.
