RADIOTELEGRAFISTFORENINGEN AF 1917/ UNION OF WIRELESS OPERATORS FOUNDED 1917
Radiotelegrafistforeningen af 1917 is a union organizing AFIS operators in Greenland. AFIS operators in Denmark and Faroe Islands are not organized in this union.
The union is based in Denmark and have organized wireless operators since 1917.
The union organized wireless operators employed in the merchant navy, civilian airlines, costal radiostations, military naval radiostations, Air Force, Danish Foreign Ministry, Danish Defence Ministry, Interpol, Oil rigs.
In Greenland we organized wireless operators and electronic technicians at costal radiostations and at stations working for the Meteorological Institute in Denmark.
Because the unions members were present at all these small locations it became practical for AFIS operators at the same locations to be organized in our union.
For AFIS operators in Greenland our union has negotiated an agreement with the Government of Greenland concerning all the different conditions in a working relation between employer and employee such as wages, working hours per month, pension, supplementary payment for night work and so on.
