  • Working

    What: Tekna has representatives in many workplaces around Norway, perhaps in one where you’ve applied for work. It can be wise to talk with a representative in order to become better acquainted with the organization where you’d like to work. If you get a job where there is a Tekna group, you automatically join this group and are thereby covered by the collective salary negotiations at this workplace.

    You should also be aware of the fact that since you’re organized in Tekna, you have several workplace rights that non-members do not have, including the right to participate in an annual salary negotiation with your superior. You can read more about this in tariffavtalene.
    Additionally, all Tekna members have access to our salary statistics and regarding work-related questions, for example during reorganization/downsizing, etc., or for questions about work schedules, vacation, pension, etc. 

    How: You can get ahold of representatives’ e-mail addresses by contacting us at tel. nr. 22 94 75 00 (choose ‘legal’ from the dropdown menu) or send an e-mail to juridisk@tekna.no

    If there is a Tekna group where you start working, you’ll be automatically registered there provided that you’ve registered where you work on My page: Min Side.
