Sweden - Waste collectors walk out - August 31, 2017

Around 65 waste collectors in Stockholm quit their jobs, a week after they first walked out in a pay dispute and row over keys. The discontent has erupted into a full-blown row when the company Reno Norden attempted to collect all keys to waste trucks and stations in Stockholm to create a digital key register during the strike. According to waste collectors, the move makes it easier for their employers to fire them. Waste collectors working for another firm, Liselotte Lööf, also walked out in solidarity. The strike, which is set to go before the Swedish Labour Court, is not officially backed by the Transport workers' union, however its representatives are involved in trying to reach a settlement.
