Benefits in joining trade unions - discounts for membership card holders
As part of the the Support to Social Partners Project, six ID card printers have been distributed to six of the most active trade unions in Kosovo, including the education TU (SBASHK), healthcare TU (FSSHK), police TU (SPK), public administration TU (SPAK), as well as our two partners SPEK (energy sector TU) and SPMK (metalworkers TU).
Aside from serving the purpose of digitizing the membership data of trade unions, this initiative creates the ground for trade unions to negotiate discounts with private business for their members who hold ID cards. Trade unions have reached agreements with different supermarket chains, grocery stores, gas stop chains and many other service providers. Now, trade union membership brings along practical benefits in the members' everyday life, even outside the workplace!
