The Union for Professionals, Akademikerforbundet SSR-ASSR, takes a clear stand on political issues that concern our members, but as an organization we are decidedly non-partisan. Our efforts are focused on employment, working conditions, the labour market and education, but we also have a vested interest in issues relating to professional development for our members, and their possibilities of conducting professional work.

We don't have no "typical" members. You will find us in the public as well as the private sector, we are self-employed and sit on managerial posts. We are behavioral scientists, economists, public health researchers, socio-economists and other social scientists. What unites our 72,000 members is that we are all academics who strive for a community and a working life that harnesses, develops and values academic competence.
