Collective Bargaining in Sweden : A Study of the Labour Market and Its Institutions, Hardback Book

Collective Bargaining in Sweden : A Study of the Labour Market and Its Institutions Hardback

Part of the Routledge Library Editions: Trade Unions series



Originally published in 1962, this book analyses and assesses the Swedish Government and structure of both trade unions and employers’ organizations, including the spread of unionism to white-collar workers.

It then examines Swedish labour legislation, which established an act on Collective Contracts, a Labour Court and a mediation service.

The book also shows the collective bargaining system at work under conditions of full employment, and examines critically the attempts to develop a policy for wages through the labour market organizations, rather than by government decree.

Anyone, in mature or developing economies, concerned with collective bargaining and wage policies will find this lucid study of the Swedish system a rich source book for positive policies.
