"Municipal: of The three million crowns do more good with us."
"This is an opinion piece. It is the writer who stands for the views that are put forward in the text, not Against."
"the DEBATE. Since a long time, the Municipal trade union-political cooperation with the social democrats. We are going to continue to have. "
"But as part of our work to become a more modern and medlemsnära union we choose to terminate the financial support that the Municipal give to the Socialists. "
"because We are convinced that it is so we best to build a trade union-political interaction that benefit members in the Local. It is about three million per year that will do more good when we make decisions about what initiatives and activities should be funded. "
"Take the election campaign as an example. Wage pink valbussar rolled across the country and visited workplaces from Haparanda in the north to Ystad in the south. Our ringkampanj was a success. We carried out 270 000 calls and had the chance to discuss political issues that impact and concern, but to come up with lectures and demands. "
"Nevertheless, or perhaps precisely because of this, voted 50 percent of the members of the social democrats. Not even 10 per cent of the members chose to vote on The sweden democrats, which pointed out the women in the Local as a particular important target group. "
"I can also confirm that the number of elected socialists with a background in Local government increased in the decision-making assemblies in municipalities, county councils and regions. Their knowledge and experience have great importance in politics and the socio-political debate. It is clear as daylight that the Union's perspective is needed. "
"A key factor of success in the election campaign was to the Local, as otherwise, ran medlemsnära and kärnfackliga requirements: Investment in the welfare and job security for the members. "
"Against the backdrop of the Union's ongoing journey of change and with the 2018 annual campaign fresh in memory, I am convinced that the money will be put to better use if they stay in the Local. "
"the Members and the elected officials have a sense of välfärdsfrågorna, know how the labour market works and is the best at to take the political discussions on the job."
"How many more working visits, training activities and campaigns, we will not be able to do? How many more buses will not be able to roll in the next election? How many more trade union-political activities see the light of day? And how many completely new methods and ideas can emerge? "
"the Answers to these questions, I believe, is within the own organization. Among members and elected officials who daily commit themselves to better working conditions, higher wages and greater equality. "
"the Union's interaction with the social democrats, will live on, albeit under new forms and conditions. Those who might believe that the decision taken in the heat of the moment on the basis of the recent tours of the policy is mistaken. "
"That influence the development of society has been an important part of the Swedish labour movement over a hundred years and will continue to be. But as times change, is also changing the Municipal. "
"It's a fun task as well as a heavy responsibility that rests on our shoulders to ensure that this is done in the best possible way. "
"The three million that support amounted to will from 2020, to be invested and used for specific purposes that strengthen the members. So working a modern trade union. So work Local. "
