Sweden -An outlook for the collective bargaining in 2016 -September 04, 2015

In 2016 some 70% of all collective agreements will have to be renegotiated for around 3 million workers. Not only the partners in collective bargaining are preparing their position. The central bank (Riksbank) published an article (Conditions for the 2016 wage bargaining round). According to the Riksbank's forecast, the rate of wage increases will rise in the next few years as the labour market strengthens and inflation rises, and real wages will increase slightly more slowly than productivity. A report of the National Institute of Economic Research also reveals that there are good opportunities for a gradual increase in wages for those who are established in the labour market.
