Sammanfattning

This report deals with the significance of the principle of proportionality in the strike law of Germany and the EU. As far as German law is concerned, the legal basis and content of the principle of proportionality will first be outlined, and then the importance of the principle for labour law in general. The main issue, however, is the role played by the principle of proportionality in industrial action law. There the Federal Labour Court has meanwhile raised the principle to the central yardstick for the assessment of industrial action measures. The relevant decisions will be presented, but also the considerable criticism of these will not be concealed. Subsequently, EU law will come to the fore, whereby the legal basis, the content and the scope of application of the principle of proportionality will be dealt first. On that basis, the application of the principle in industrial action law will be examined. In that context, the focus will be in the decisions of the European Court of Justice in the cases Laval and Viking. The following section is then devoted to the comparison of German and European law. The author here demonstrates that there are considerable differences in the application of the principle of proportionality.

Sammanfattning

Kollektivavtal reglerar anställningsförmåner och villkor för närmare 85 procent av de anställda i privat sektor på svensk arbetsmarknad. Det gör kollektivavtalen till en mycket viktig pelare i den svenska arbetsmarknadsmodellen. Fackföreningarna undertecknar avtalen på mandat från sina medlemmar, och arbetsgivarorganisationer gör detsamma för sina. Höga medlemstal och hög anslutningsgrad är förutsättningar för modellens legitimitet och kräver att kollektivavtal upplevs som (tillräckligt) attraktiva från båda håll. En enkät från Arbetsmarknadsekonomiska rådet visar dock att flera företagsrepresentanter upplever kollektivavtal som krångliga och kostsamma, särskilt skeptiska är företagare som står utan kollektivavtal. Upplevelserna skiljer sig även åt mellan branscherna (Calmfors m fl 2018). Det finns väldigt lite kunskap om skillnaderna i kollektivavtalens regleringar. I den här studien rapporteras en systematisk genomgång av 50 kollektivavtal vars regler kring arbetstid kategoriseras. Rapportens resultat visar tydliga skillnader mellan kollektivavtalen vad gäller centralisering. Jämförelsen av kollektivavtalens regler uppenbarar tydliga skillnader i möjligheten till lokala överenskommelser och i vilken utsträckning det finns begränsningar inskrivna i avtalet. Slutligen används resultat från Calmfors med flera (2018) om branschskillnader avseende viljan att behålla kollektivavtal utan tvång för att undersöka samvariationen mellan kollektivavtalsvilja och regleringar. Det tycks finnas ett visst samband, men företagares syn på kollektivavtalens attraktivitet handlar inte enkom om regler.

Sammanfattning

The Covid-19 pandemic has made it clear that the labour market situation can change
extremely rapidly when there is an unexpected exogenous shock to the economy. Even
though the transformation of the labour market as a result of the development of ICT
(Information Communication Technology) industries facilitates more-flexible
conditions, it is now more important than ever for EU Member States to improve the
functioning of their labour markets. Member States need to increase possibilities for
training and retraining throughout peoples’ working lives in order to smooth the
transformation into a digital world of work.

Ratio Working Paper

Sammanfattning

This paper studies the perceived difficulty of recruiting scarce competences to rural regions. Furthermore, the role of policy in facilitating and enhancing recruitment to and better skills matching in rural regions is discussed. Based on a survey targeted to the business sections in Swedish municipalities, the results show that recruitment is perceived to be difficult in both rural and non-rural regions. However, recruitment problems in the public sector are more pronounced in rural municipalities. Nevertheless, recruitment to the public and business sectors are perceived to be equally difficult in rural regions. Both rural municipalities and non-rural municipalities state that the difficulty of recruiting the right skills results in a lack of skills matching and constitutes an obstacle to growth. Which policies can help remedy recruitment problems in rural regions? The pecuniary incentive of writing off student debt is perceived to be the most promising policy, but respondents also believe that non-pecuniary support such as relocation support for accompanying persons and tandem recruitment should be implemented to a greater extent. Finally, the need for flexibility and policies that can be adapted to the regional demand for labour are stressed. This regards for example the adaption of education programmes to local needs and rules and regulations.
