Sweden - Municipal union pulls out of agreement - April 16, 2010

On 6 April, the SKTF municipal union has announced that it is pulling out of an agreement because its members are not getting the pay increases that have been negotiated. The union has signed three agreements in the private health sector, two of which expire this year. The third agreement should run until 2011 but SKTF has found that around 30% of its members in health companies have not had pay increases that are due to them. The union accuses the Almega employers’ organization of failing to monitor implementation of the agreement.
