GAM: We want to support Seta!


The General Annual Meeting of the Students’ Union of Trade Union Pro has decided to apply for support membership at Seta ry, an organization dedicated to fighting discrimination based on gender and sexual orientation.

The General Annual Meeting of the Students’ Union of Trade Union Pro has decided, as the first trade union-based student organization, to apply for support membership at Seta ry. With the support membership the Students’ Union of Trade Union Pro wants to support Seta ry’s important work towards equal rights to all within the Finnish society, education and the labor market.

Equal rights are important to the Students’ Union of Trade Union Pro on all aspects, and at all stages, of life.  The fundamental value held by the trade union movement is that the unions must support those that need it the most and therefore Seta ry’s work is valuable to the overall aims of the union movement. The Students’ Union of Trade Union Pro encourages other organizations within the trade union movement to give their support to Seta ry and its work towards a discrimination-free and fair world in any and all forms available to the trade unions.

The General Annual Meeting of the Students’ Union of Trade Union Pro gathered in Helsinki on the 9th of December and, along with the decision to support Seta ry, ruled on the guiding documents and elected the new chairs and a new board for 2017.
