Europe and the Nordic Collective-Bargaining Model

The Complex Interaction between Nordic and European Labour Law

image of Europe and the Nordic Collective-Bargaining Model

One of the special features of the Nordic countries is that the determination of wages and working conditions is largely left up to the negotiations between the social partners. The purpose of this report is to illuminate a number of the challenges faced by the labour-law systems of the Nordic countries in the light of an increasingly well-developed European law system.The first part of the report was prepared by Dr. Jur. Jens Kristiansen, the editor-in-chief, and focuses on a number of the general challenges facing the labour-law systems of the Nordic countries in the form of European rules and court decisions.The second part of the report was prepared by various representatives of employer and employee organisations in the Nordic countries and illustrates some of the challenges faced by the social partners in their interaction with the European court system and the way in which these challenges have been addressed in the individual countries.

Altered Labour Market after Vaxholm

I was sitting at home one evening, reading the newspapers and magazines I had brought home with me in my briefcase. One of them was a newspaper called Nyliberalen (The Neo-Liberal). There I saw an article about Byggnads (The Swedish Building Workers’ Union) with a picture of our logo – a logo which shows a person wearing a hardhat in profile. What I saw was something that would make any calm man’s blood boil. What they had done was to put a Nazi SS symbol on our logo. It was just one of many attacks from debaters and journalists, mostly in right-wing newspapers.
