Sweden - Health employers pull out of pay agreement - October 9, 2009

Municipal and healthcare union Kommunal is very concerned that some 4,000 personal health care assistants will not get a pay increase next year, as a result of the decision by the Vårdföretagarna health employers' organisation to terminate a pay agreement with the union. Kommunal says it will continue to negotiate on the workers' behalf to see if an increase can be achieved. It is highly critical of the employers' organisation and says this is a blow to any further progress towards equal pay.
