Sweden - Trade unions coordinate bargaining round 2017 - October 31, 2016

All 14 trade unions affiliated to trade union confederation LO have agreed on joint demands ahead of the 2017 bargaining round. The joint demands include focusing on low-wage groups, which means that the lowest-paid members of LO affiliates will receive an extra increment in kronor. This means an initiative that could give 50% of all female LO members pay increases at individual level. To tackle the abuse of temporary employment contracts, LO’s General Council also decided to set up a working group in which the affiliates together with LO are to review the entire Employment Protection Act ahead of negotiations with the Confederation of Swedish Enterprise.
