Sari started working as a mail carrier at Posti in 1990. The transition from her previous labor union to the Post Union happened immediately. “Whether all the work-related rules were followed correctly in my youth, one can never be certain, but the membership provides protection. Members receive guidance and, in critical situations, even legal support,” says Sari.
“Without the labor union, I might not be working at Posti anymore.”
