Unemployment policy with many educational and preparatory features has a strengthening effect on individuals that have access to it. It provides a sound basis that enables individuals to fully participate to the best of their ability in the labour market. It is an important starting point for the Swedish Trade Union Confederation's view of labour market policy.

The Swedish Trade Union Confederation also considers that all unemployed people should be given the opportunity to study and increase their chances of getting a job, with student financial support that is possible to live on.

The Swedish Trade Union Confederation Congress decided that the Swedish Trade Union Confederation should initiate broad development of labour market issues with special focus on the conditions for adaptation, education and sustainable jobs. The aim should be to give people development opportunities and favourable conditions at work and to strengthen the foundations of growth and development of welfare.
