Sweden - Two-year deals with KFS employer federation - July 5, 2010

Earlier in June and July, the Kommunal union signed 10 two-year agreements with the KFS employers’ organisation. KFS brings together 600 companies with around 35,000 employees providing a range of municipal services, such as consulting, museums, health, and education. Around 80% of the KFS member companies are owned by local authorities while the rest are partially or wholly privately owned. Kommunal believes the agreements are in line with the overall settlement in the municipal sector. They provide for increases of 1.1%-1.5% in 2010 rising to 2.2% to 2.6% in 2011. Some agreements express monthly increases in SEK, ranging from SEK 300 (Euro 31) to SEK 450 (Euro 47) in 2010 and from SEK 520 (Euro 54) to SEK 550 (Euro 57) in 2011.
