After the case of the ABB shop steward dismissal was resolved the trade unions criticised the hardening attitude of employers that is challenging the whole labour market negotiation system. The reason for the hardening climate at workplaces is economic insecurity. Employers are dismissing employees, changing the organisation, increasing outsourcing and trying to replace collective agreements with less costly ones. Thus, shop stewards are put in a very difficult position. The growing demand for more effective production and increased stress also creates challenges in terms of occupational health. All this is creating a negative trend and atmosphere at workplaces.
