In addition, Professor Arto O. Salonen gave a video presentation on the sense of meaning in working life and “explainer of the present” Petri Rajaniemi talked about the role of trade unions in the world today. Council members had a chance to discuss all the themes of the presentations in panel discussions with members from various council factions.
Board develops work of committees
The Council Arena was followed by the ordinary meeting of the General Council. Chair of TEK’s Board Mari-Leena Talvitie talked about the early days of the Board, which was elected in the organisation meeting in September, especially in terms of reforming the work of the committees.
“The Board decided to reform the work done by the committees. We divided the committees into labour market committees and theme committees. Separate working groups were set up to develop them. The labour market committees will continue the same as before, but the names, goals and purpose of the theme committees will be slightly updated.”
