AF in boards and forums

AF’s trustees are elected to participate in forums and boards within the group to gain insights and influence Scania’s activities. Through early involvement we can contribute to solid and long-term sustainable solutions.

Representation in boards 

Employee representatives in the board contribute with experience and knowledge about how it is to work at the company. All board members have the same rights and obligations – regardless if they are elected by the association or employee representatives. AF’s trustees are elected for the following boards:

  • Scania CV AB
  • Scania-Bilar Sverige
  • Dynamate Industrial Services,
  • Mälardalens Tekniska Gymnasium
  • SRB - Scanias ResultatBonusstiftelse 
  • Personalstiftelsen
