Join the Union

Fill in the online membership application and press 'send'. For an employee, direct withholding by the employer is the most convenient way to pay the union membership fee. Once you issue a proxy to the Union, your employer will withhold the membership fee directly from your salary and transfer it to the Union. You may print out and fill in the proxy from the file below. Please scan and send the proxy to the union via email: professoriliitto (at) professoriliitto.fi. You may use Securemail to encrypt your message containing personal data. The Union office will take care of delivering your proxy to the employer.

Alternatively, a printable version of the membership application and the proxy granting the employer the authority to deduct the membership fee from your salary can be found at the end of this page. You can mail these to the union using the address: Professoriliitto, Rautatieläisenkatu 6, 00520 Helsinki.

Union membership fees are tax-deductible. The Union will automatically provide the tax authorities with information on paid membership fees.
