Job alternation leave

Applying for a discount

You can apply for a discount on membership fees when you have entered into a job alternation leave agreement with your employer. The application for each year should be made at the latest by 31 December.

Applying for a further discount

If your eligibility for a discount continues, submit a new membership fee discount application to customer service at the end of the previous discount period. If the job alternation leave continues into the following year, you can apply as soon as you receive the first bill for the full membership fee.

Certificate required

A certificate stating the duration of the job alternation leave must be included in the application. Attach to your application:

  • Copy of the job alternation leave agreement

A picture or a screenshot also works as evidence. You will be asked to provide more information for the application if necessary.

Discount amount

EUR14 from the monthly membership fee.

For the members of the Association of IT sector Employees, the discounted membership fee is EUR18 per month (includes the unemployment fund membership fee if the member has joined through the Union of Professional Engineers in Finland).

The start and the end of the discount period

Notify the Union’s customer service regarding any changes to the membership fee discount without delay.
