News about membership and union topics
The membership contingent increases or remains unchanged
NEWS 16-03-2022: Many of the union members in the next coming days receive an SMS message that their monthly membership contingent will increase by a certain amount from April 1, 2022. But there are also many others who do not receive an SMS message – for their contingent will be the same like now.
The congress in September thus contented itself with calling on the branches to reduce their share of the contingent by the equivalent of DKK 15 so that an increase in the individual member’s total contingent can be avoided.
