Sweden - The hotel sector signs an agreement - April 30, 2017

The Hotel and Restaurant Workers' Union HRF signed a 3-year national agreement which meets their key bargaining demands less than 12 hours before a national strike was to begin. HRF received strong national and international support in the run-up deadline. Affiliates of the confederation LO pledged active support to the hotel workers, including stopping deliveries and other concrete solidarity actions in the event of a strike. The agreement provides for a SEK 1,650 (172 euro) monthly increase for full-time workers over a 3-year period; a 6.5% increase for overtime; and a significant increase for the lowest-paid which meets or exceeds the increases for low-wage workers established in other sectoral agreements.
