In Sweden, around 70 per cent of all employees are members of a union. Sveriges Farmaceuter, The Swedish Pharmacists Association, is a trade union for university graduates in pharmacy, founded in 1903. We aim to ensure that you are secure in your employment and able to develop in your professional life. As a professional association, we are experts on the competence, skills and labour market for pharmacists.
