Bettina Johansson, the regional director of the Union, calls on the next government to talk to social partners and not to change employment security by law.
We are faced with cyclical slowdown, while automation changes the labor market and imposes completely new demands for conversion. The next government must halt the paralysis of action and implement comprehensive reforms to strengthen workers and Swedish competitiveness.
The Union is the largest Swedish Union. In the private sector we organize 650,000 civil servants, many of whom are at the forefront of technological development and operate globally.
It is crucial for us to understand how the external world affects the company's conditions and what is in the future. In order for the Swedish economy to develop well, it is important to address the problems that prevent economic development and increase the risks of recession. The Swedish model of the party is the main guarantor of stability and growth.
Through the responsible side, employers and employees have been laying the foundations for building a community that has made Sweden the leading nation for decades. The Union will assume our responsibility to meet development, but it is also necessary for politicians to take over their part.
The Union has identified a series of actions that the next government should take immediate action.
• Facilitate entry into the labor market. Unemployment among domestic workers is in practice at the bottom, while foreign relatives have great difficulties. Fans and employers have a long history of strengthening Swedish competitiveness through negotiations. Work is an example that will make it easier for new and long-term unemployed to enter the foot into the labor market under shady conditions.
• Ensure skill delivery. Almost half of private officials in the country need further training, which they can not get from their employers, but there are many obstacles. There must be more places for education at colleges / universities that are tailored to the needs and needs of professional workers. The university also needs resources to conduct validation of vocational qualifications and the student system needs to be reformed.
• Ease the transition. Travel rules are usually accused of leading to a rigid labor market where competence is not important. That's a myth. Through collective bargaining, companies have good opportunities to maintain the skills they need when they are down. However, it is based on the fact that the rules of delays are there as the basis for the negotiations.
Changing the rules of legislation through legislation will drastically change the rules of the Swedish labor market and the risk of reversing much of what the business has done to be successful. Instead, the next government should sit down and discuss how best to work together to equip our workforce for the future.
In good times, it is necessary to plan and worsen because it gets nothing better than this. And the intention of the next government is to strengthen Sweden for tomorrow's labor market.
