Sweden -Right to minimal pay -May 27, 2012

During its Congress the Trade Union Confederation LO has expressed concern over the reduction of minimum pay levels and the creation of low-paid jobs. This policy contravenes the modernisation of the labour market and the goal of fair wages. LO will work to safeguard the collective agreement model with collectively agreed minimum pay levels. The growing pay gap between white and blue-collar workers has to be reduced.
