When many of us stand united, we can negotiate rights and benefits that we could otherwise lose, and which we often take for granted. There are many reasons for joining IF Metall. Here are some of the most important
You can get compensation from our unemployment fund if you lose your job. Income insurance is also included in the membership
Thanks to our collective agreements, you get a fair wage, regular pay increases, reasonable working hours, overtime pay, unsocial hours supplements and additional leave. When you stop working, you can enjoy the extra contract pension.
A good work environment is important for the prevention of accidents and illnesses. We make sure that the employer complies with the Work Environment Act and that there are health and safety officers working for your safety and wellbeing.
We give you advice and support on dismissal, rehabilitation, wage negotiations and more. If needed, you can also get legal aid. We also help you to grow in your professional role so that you also have skills that are in demand in the future.
You can get compensation for both work injuries and accidents in leisure time, as well as when you are ill, through our collective agreements and members’ insurance. You can also get an extra allowance when you are on parental leave.
The employer must negotiate with the union in the workplace before making decisions on many important issues. This may include changes to working hours and tasks, or how wages are to be developed and distributed in the workplace. You can have an influence in this.
It is difficult to demand rights on your own. But you are not on your own. We have over 300,000 members. Together we can improve conditions for all industrial workers and make society fairer.

Ever since the 19th century free trade unions in Sweden have fought for good working conditions and fair wages for the workers. Compared to other countries a vast majority in Sweden is member of a union like IF Metall. That makes us strong in negotiations with the employers. So strong that the politicians don’t have to get so involved in the labor market. Instead they can focus on the general welfare system and education, basic grounds needed to make safe and competent workers. This is commonly known as ‘The Swedish model’.
Working hours, wages, pension, insurances, etc. are negotiated by unions and employers and regulated in national collective agreements, instead of legislation. This model requires many members in the unions. Unions organizing many members can continue to be a strong voice and to negotiate strong collective agreements with good working conditions and wages.
