The Union of Film and Media Employees Finland (SET) is a trade union and cultural organisation. SET extensively represents professionals working in the film, television and media industry. SET’s operations are led by a Board selected annually by the members.
The members work with feature films and short, documentary and advertisement films as well as media and TV content, from entertainment and sports to current affairs and reality, and as teachers in the industry.
SET’s umbrella organisation, the Union of Journalists in Finland, offers extensive trade union member services, including collective labour agreement negotiations, advice on employment contracts, terms of employment and copyright, training events, member insurance and many other member benefits. Each member of the Union of Journalists in Finland receives an electronic press card after their joining confirmation.
SET publishes the Lehtiset online magazine that is the only creator-focused magazine in Finland specialised in film, television and media culture. The significance of the online magazine as an influencer in cultural policy is remarkable, and its themes support SET’s takes and statements on cultural policy.
