Municipal union calls for higher pay, greater equality and stronger agreements

Sweden
Municipal union Kommunal is looking for a pay increase of at least 620 SKr (€61) (2.6%) this year along with higher pay increases (745 SKr (€73)) in sectors where women predominate to help close the gender pay gap. The union also wants to see a strong central agreement backed up with local collective agreements to ensure that there is a clear link between the main pay negotiations and bargaining at local level. The other main bargaining issues include the need to reduce the use of temporary workers, improvements to working conditions and greater equality in terms of gender, race, age, religion and sexual orientation.
