one year ago got Red with a parliamentary majority and we gave a clear message to the government: Come with steps to get up organisasjonsgraden in Norway.
the Red-lined the proposal in Parliament as a response on the Jeløya-the declaration from the conservative party, the Right and Left. In this he felt were the three parties concerned that it is just fine to be disorganized as to be organized.
This was fierce challenge for the trade unions, which have lost ground over several years. From 1992 to today, the proportion of employees who are member of a trade union has declined from 57 to below 50 per cent.
the Proposal, our got the plural, and the coalition parties went on a defeat. The Norwegian parliament's decision was important, the trade unions have not become redundant. There is more need for it than in a long time. But it has worse circumstances.Fagforeningsknusing is a shame for Norway, Columnist
Is it the politicians ' task to enlist members to the trade unions? Of course not. But we who are elected to Parliament must ensure that the legislation supports the trade unions.
Several moves in the time do fagbevegelsens work heavier:
1. Temporary employment and hiring: Many jobs on short contracts and don't know if they will get to work next week, why dare they not to organize themselves.
2. Confusing bedriftsstrukturer: Rema-Reitan and other store owners, place employees in the subsidiaries where it neither is money for the salary increase or the opportunity for real participation.
3. The increased use of tenders, among other things, in cleaning and transport: When your company loses a tender, visit the club often in the resolution.
These business models have in a short time created great fortunes in the Uk. Dagligvarebaronene and hotellkongene have used creative methods to keep trade unions at arm's length.
Thus, weakened the organized labour market and the differences in Norway is increasing.
Nevertheless select the government to ignore Parliament's clear order on measures for increased organisasjonsgrad.
In Granavolden-the declaration, that came in January, says the bourgeois parties once again that they recognize the right to be disorganized.
This time it is more serious. Now comes this from a majority rule. We know that the conservative party through the 40 years has worked to break down fagbevegelsens collective kampkraft. We know also that the Trine Skei Grande is sick of listening to LO. It means that Right now can work more efficient with his goals, namely more løsarbeid and greater income disparity, so the affected area has been in many european countries. This is the recipe to break down the trade unions.
Therefore, it is even more important than before, that we who want a strong Norwegian fagbevegelse closely with in the future.
It is particularly provocative that the government does not put more to the right for trade unions, because we know that many do not dare to fagorganisere.LO-boss's hardcore settlement
A poll done for Svenssonstiftelsen in 2018, shows that many do not dare to join a union for fear that this will have consequences for the job in the form of fewer guards, or worse compared to the boss. The fear is greatest among the young, those who earn least and those who do not have permanent employment.
It is a human right to be organized, promote claims about the collective agreement and negotiate wages on the job. Therefore, it is striking that the coalition parties time and time again promotes the proposal that weakens the trade unions:
1. The government has opened for several temporary employees and fighting for better conditions for bemanningsbyråene, rather than focusing on permanent positions.
2. The government has not increased fagforeningsfradraget a single time after it took over in 2013. Until the next options will the allowance losing 20 per cent in value.
3. The government alerts in Granavolden-the declaration that it will consider more use of individual working hours and the strengthening of the employer's managerial prerogative on working time. This will be a dramatic setbacks for the union.
the coalition parties votes consistently down all the suggestions that could be given to the trade unions ' increased influence. Now the last time they went against the Red-the proposal to stop fagforeningsknusing by to close the gaps in the bankruptcy act and to prevent that they can organize themselves away from the arbeidsgiveransvaret.
There are many examples that it takes place fagforeningsknusing and circumventions of the intent of the working environment in major companies such as Norwegian, Aleris and Elkjøp.
One of the grelleste examples are lakseslakteriet Norse Production, which was bankrupt a short time after the employees got collective bargaining agreement. Two days after the bankruptcy, production was started up again in the same premises. Fagforeningsknusinga happened with surgical precision: All of the unorganized got to continue in the job, while all the organized in the LO-associated NNN got fired.
This we need to get to an end. But the coalition parties have said they are going to vote against the proposal. It shows that the government is not at this korsveien will vote for a decision that could strengthen the trade unions.
the Government says that it follows up the decision from the Norwegian Parliament about the increased organisasjonsgrad. But so far it has been with seminars and chat.
We will not let the government get away with fluff. Red will together with the opposition and trade unions increase pressure on the government to come to follow up the Storting's order.This loss pain Erna most Dagbladet Plus
