Welcome to the Union of Civil Servants!

At the University of Gothenburg, we are approximately 1,100 members in the Union of Civil Servants (Fackförbundet ST). All employees are welcome as members regardless of their duties, position, and education. We are active within the entire university and can help you with salary negotiations, work environment issues, and other issues related to your employment.

The Union of Civil Servants organizes employees who work for universities, colleges, state agencies, companies employed by the state, and state financed foundations. We are the largest union in the governmental sector with about 97,000 members.

We are convinced that everyone benefits from being member of the same union rather than belonging to different unions based on profession.

ST is politically independent. This does not prevent us from expressing views and acting on various political issues that have bearing on our members’ interests or affect their work situation. ST stands for democracy, justice, humanism, and solidarity. We work actively to maintain and promote good working conditions, e.g. in terms of salaries, influence, work environment, good leadership, gender equality, and diversity.
