Federation of Public and Private Sector Employees

The Federation of Public and Private Sector Employees (Finnish: Julkis- ja yksityisalojen toimihenkilöliitto, Jyty) is a trade union representing local government workers in Finland.

The union was founded in 1918, and it became known as the Federation of Municipal Officials. It affiliated to the Confederation of Salaried Employees (TVK), but the TVK went bankrupt in 1992, and the union transferred to the Finnish Confederation of Professionals. By 1998, it had 75,500 members.[1][2]

In 2004, after two small unions representing adult education workers merged in, the union renamed itself as the "Federation of Public and Private Sector Employees".[2]
