" Sweden will continue to have a strong konflikträtt. The trade unions the employees choose to organize in the shall always have the right to ultimately take to strejkvapnet to achieve a collective agreement, but it should be the same conditions that apply to all trade unions, " says Ylva Johansson.
as well as the Swedish Business community stands behind the proposal, which will now become law.
the labour court, which is one of the bodies consulted on the draft law, considers that the proposal needs to be amended. The presiding judge Jonas Malmberg says to the Echo, for example, political strikes would be illegal.
– When you read the text of the law so will probably be the consequence that it would not be possible to take such industrial action, because they are not designed to meet collective agreement with the employer, " says Malmberg.
the Government appointed an investigation on the limited right to strike as a result of the prolonged hamnkonflikten in Gothenburg, sweden. It is not yet solved, on Sunday starts the next round of punktstrejker and lockouts.
