All LO’s 14 affiliates have agreed on joint demands ahead of the 2017 bargaining round. This was the decision of the LO General Council at its meeting on October 19. It is a strong and united LO that is now putting forward joint demands, says LO President Karl-Petter Thorwaldsson.
Sweden is an export-dependent country and a strong supporter of free trade. A free trade agreement with the United States is important if we are to create a greater number of competitive jobs in Sweden.
LO welcomes the negotiations on TTIP, a free-trade agreement between the EU and the USA. The Swedish trade union movement is and has always been positive to free trade.
