Sweden’s Construction Workers Strike is Over

Swedens Construction Workers back to Work

The construction workers union finally worked out a deal early on Tuesday morning. They now have a three year agreement.

Since Wednesday last week 800 workers at Peab were on strike. Another 1500 people were notified that they might have to go on strike starting April 27th.

The construction workers union (Byggnads) have among other things gotten their demand through regarding the employers’ obligation to send in information on salaries to the union, not only for members of Byggnads, but also for those from other unions and those who aren’t even in any union.

Swedish Construction Workers Union Strike

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , — MonkeyPrincess @ 19:00PM

On Wednesday morning the construction workers’ union is going on strike, aimed at Peab, that involves 800 workers, at about 40 different locations throughout the country.

There is another strike that might start on Friday, against three major Swedish construction companies – JM, NCC and Skanska. This one involves 1500 workers all over the country.

A total of 2300 workers are involved.

Apparently there is a demand for construction workers right now, but the construction workers themselves seem to feel that they are not appreciated enough, they want better deals.
