Sweden - Union argues for higher pay for ‘women’s’ jobs - September 13, 2009

Local government union Kommunal believes that the approach of unions in the LO confederation in 2007 to negotiate higher pay increases for jobs where women make up the majority of workers has contributed to closing the gender pay gap. The union argues that it is unacceptable that “women’s” jobs are undervalued and believes there is still a long way to go to close the gap.
