The agreement includes clauses on pay, working time, break times, training, health and safety. The collective agreement will cover all 11 Swedwood plants, employing over 9,000 people. The unions worked in cooperation with the Builders and Wood Workers’ International and Swedish unions, who put pressure on IKEA’s global management to come to a constructive solution.
