Changes planned to Skilla’s membership fee
As the Akava Special Branches membership fee model for associations changes, Skilla intends to change its membership fee from a percentage-based fee to a fixed monthly fee.
Akava Special Branches Spring General Meeting on 10th Apr voted to change the membership fee model for its member associations. Our delegates voted for the change in line with our 2020 action plan: “The association’s goal is to move from a percentage based membership fee in the Akava Special Branches community to a fixed monthly fee.”
Our main goals in the membership fee reform have been to make it easier to pay the membership fee and to make our median membership fee more competitive.
With the membership fee reform, we want to make it easier to become and be a Skilla member: you no longer have to keep track of percentages when your income varies monthly, whether the variation be caused by work allowances, a raise, or holiday pay. Whether your membership fee is paid by your employer or by yourself, you no longer have to spend time thinking about the amount, but know exactly what you pay and what you’ll get: advocacy to ensure that your skills are valued in working life, training in useful skills, and recreation with your peers.

Our autumn general meeting decides on the amount of the new membership fee, and the new fixed membership fee takes effect at the beginning of 2022.
