Our partners

The Open Unemployment Fund works in partnership with several trade unions and most of our members belong to a trade union. Trade unions are on the side of the worker and bring security to working life.

At the Unemployment Fund, we make sure that our members have a financial safety net. For the best protection throughout your working life, join a union and an unemployment fund.

Below you will find our affiliations and information about the services and benefits they offer. We also work with a number of other organisations that provide useful services for the unemployed.
