Does this concern you?
When it comes to collective agreements, the employees in industrial companies in Finland are divided into three groups: senior salaried employees, salaried employees and factory workers according to the content, tasks and character of the job. You are a senior salaried employee, if you
- work in expert positions requiring specialized knowledge and skills, or in supervisory positions in middle management
- have a high degree of independence and responsibility in the work
- have a university or polytechnic degree, or a qualification obtained at work
The Federation of Professional and Managerial Staff (YTN) represents the senior salaried employees in the labour market and at workplace.

Official definition of senior salaried employee
Senior salaried employees work in specialist, supervisory and managerial positions that characteristically involve a relatively high degree of independence and responsibility.
Their duties require a high standard of education, or corresponding skills and expertise acquired through work experience.
A high standard of education denotes university or polytechnic education or comparable/equivalent qualifications, such as an engineering degree completed at a university of applied sciences or HSO secretarial qualifications.
Senior salaried employees do not serve in top-level enterprise management. Supervising other senior salaried employees does not exclude an individual from serving in a senior salaried employee capacity.
