Sweden -IF Metall launches own job placement scheme -August 27, 2013

Dissatisfied with the functioning of the country's scandal-hit jobs agency (Arbetsförmedlingen) the trade union IF Metall has launched its own job-placement scheme.  Despite high demand for welders and machinists the funds to educate job seekers are not adequately used. Among the union's members, almost 10% are out of work at present. The union's Competence Database (Kompetensbanken) will help the union's 340,000 members to find jobs.
