Membership fee collection for employers
The employer collects the membership fee every payroll period and pays it into the bank account of the Trade Union Pro by the due date.
Member-by-member statements of contributions paid with company-specific references are submitted to the Association on a monthly or quarterly basis by the 15th day of the month following the period to be settled.
At the end of the employment relationship, a notice of termination of collection is completed.

The delivery address is the Trade Union Pro, Employer Registration, PL 183, 00581 Helsinki.
Pro sends the information on the trade union contribution to the tax authorities
Please use the correct reference when remitting dues to Pro.
Always use the reference for the month to which the salary relates when you bill your membership fees, regardless of when the salary is paid. The reference is important to correctly allocate statements based on the date the salary was earned.
If the salary is paid more than once a month (same pay period/month), use the same reference for all statements of contributions.
Membership contributions are not due during periods such as family leave, study or unpaid sick leave. To qualify for a contribution waiver, the employee must register the interruption with the Union's Register of Members.
When a member's dues cease to be deducted, he or she must inform his or her employer, as we at Pro cannot do this on the member's behalf. The notification must include the member's name and the date from which the member's dues payment to Pro will cease.
Notify the union if your business is closing or changing ownership. This will inform us of the new employer/owner and we will no longer expect dues statements from the old employer.
If a merger involves several members, the collection of membership fees can be agreed without renewing the collection agreements. Often the terms of employment are agreed to remain unchanged, and this can also be used for the collection. The union will be informed of the members affected by the change. The notification/group authorisation must include; the names of the members, their personal ID numbers, the name, address and social security number of the former and new employer and the contact person of the company (payroll administration).
