The main function of Teaterförbundet is to negotiate collective agreements, which among other things, include guaranteed minimum wages, terms of employment, insurances, pensions and copyright remuneration. The Swedish labour-market is based on unions and employers’ organizations being equal parts. To stay equally strong with the employers Teaterförbundet needs you as a member. Teaterförbundet also represents members who are so called self-employed with F-tax card.

The EuroFIA Dance Passport
The EuroFIA Dance Passport is a reciprocal solidarity service that performers’ unions in Europe have agreed to grant to their respective members, assisting them as they temporarily work or seek employment opportunities in another EU member State, in Iceland, Norway and Switzerland. It allows the Passport holder to benefit temporarily from various services offered, at no cost, by the union in the country of destination.

This is Teaterförbundet
We are representing professional performers and other creative workers from across the spectrum of the entertainment, creative and cultural industries. Teaterförbundet organizes professional authors such as directors, choreographers and set designers. The majority of our members are performers such as dancers, actors, opera singers, circus and variety artistes and stunt performers. We also have branches for technical staff at theatres and in the film industry, as well as for administrativ personnel at theatres.

You must be able to focus on your creative work. The practical things should be in order by distinct agreements and conditions. This is our common task in Teaterförbundet. Authors and performers in Teaterförbundet will be affiliated to our collecting society: Rättighetsbolaget. Rättighetsbolaget protects your copyright and distributes more than 35 million SEK a year to copyright holders.
