Sweden: dock strikes test new government

  (Click to enlarge)

Dock workers in Sweden are striking for their trade union rights. The employers have closed down their union offices and stopped recognising elected representatives of their main union.

The employers have already won support from the government to limit the right to strike - in a country with the lowest numbers of strikes of all OECD countries! Now they want that law to be introduced earlier, to end the present strike.

They have also answered the strikes with lock-outs.

The struggle takes place in the context of a new Social Democrat-Green government, backed by junior right-wing parties, pressing for a sharp increase in neoliberal attacks. This includes public sector cuts, deregulating rents - and degrading employment protection laws.
