Estonian IT workers are now represented by Transport and Road Workers' Trade Union

02.05.2011  

On April 28 Estonian Transport and Road Workers' Trade Union (ETTA) and Estonian Telco&IT Workers' Trade Union (Telco&IT) signed a representation contract by which Estonian Transport and Road Workers' Trade Union represents and protects the IT and telecom workers in work related matters. Yesterday this contract came into force.
 

The chairman of ETTA, Peep Peterson said that representing IT and telecommunication workers is a complex, yet promising challenge: "By far not all the workers in the sector get a glamourous paychek in the end of the month and the tension of keeping their level of expertise is extremely high."

At the moment vast majority of Telco&IT members work in Elion (former Eesti Telekom) which is the largest telecommunications company in Estonia, owned by the TeliaSonera AB which is the dominant telecom company in Sweden and Finland but as the chair of Telco&IT, Kersti Lang  said, they are keen to expand to other companies.

Mrs Lang added that the decision to co-operate with ETTA was somewhat forseeable for some time because Estonian Transport and Road Workers' Trade Union has the best competence in labour law and collective representation in Estonia and for Telco&IT these two were the key arguments when choosing a partner.

Mr Peterson assured that transport and telecom members will not blend in with each other as both of the trade unions and their trademarks will be kept apart and developed separately for the best possible representation. Only some of the services and competence is united.
