Working in Denmark
In Denmark the majority of workers are members of a trade union. Union density is one of the highest in the world.
Your Danish colleagues expect you to be a member of a trade union.
3F is Denmark's largest and most powerful trade union and unemployment fund. 3F secures better wage and working conditions for its members. We have collective agreements at more work places than any other Danish trade union.
If you do not join 3F when you gain employment in Denmark, then you could risk being cheated and being underpaid.

Through 3F, you will get any private insurance with Alka at a discount. On average, 3F members will save DKK 3,000 on insurance premiums.
