Guest in reality - About posted workers in practice
In this report we have tried to give a qualified picture of the incidence of posting of foreign workers in the LO (Swedish Trade Union Confederation) affiliates' industries. The report shows that in construction posted workers make up almost 19 per cent of the total workforce and in forestry about 11 per cent. In other industries the percentage of posted workers is more modest.
In LO industries where posting is common, the motive often seems to be reducing the price of labour. It is our hope that this report, which was originally written as material for the parliamentary Lex Laval inquiry, will convey a picture of the part of the labour market where unsatisfactory conditions are most often greatest.
