Stop fighting and take responsibility, Building – Aftonbladet

DEBATE. Sweden is in great need of new homes, kindergartens and hospitals. But can we continue to develop our society, we must have competitive construction company.

Could requirements Construction management added during wage negotiations materialize, it means that one third of construction companies find it difficult to survive and 30 000 employees had lost his job. Now that the building management once again blows to conflict risk housing crisis to deepen. This is not to take responsibility for the future.

The Swedish Construction Federation has an important starting point in the negotiations has been to protect the small and medium-sized construction companies. They constitute 99 percent of our members and it is in these the vast majority of employees work. Will it continue to be so, we need to jointly take responsibility. It requires that we do not increase costs more than other industries, we create the opportunity to work with employees to choose the form of wages fit for the business and that we ensure that more signs collective agreement.

Swedish construction company has developed rapidly In recent years. Job satisfaction increases, reducing workplace accidents and many business owners are proud to offer their employees very good condition. A construction worker today earns an average of 33 000 kronor. In Stockholm, is the average salary for the new construction of 38 000. As an apprentice employee, you get right after high school 65 percent of what a full-paid skilled workers receive. Already after 1-2 years as one lies on the cut.

The starting salary of a construction worker is more than what a police officer serving for five years or what a what a nurse with 10 years experience earns.

given the construction needs, there should be excellent opportunities to continue to develop the industry.

But, unfortunately, has been building leadership once again chosen to fight in instead of bringing a responsible discussion at the bargaining table. Unfortunately, it is not entirely surprising.

In fact, the building’s management has notice or strike in almost all agreements movements of modern times. Just between 2011 and 2015 gave notice Building line 26 times in disputes between contractors. No other union chooses conflict so often.

We want the building will return to the negotiating table. We have important issues to discuss – how do we work together to secure the Swedish construction jobs? How do we make sure to get a greater diversity in the industry? How can we develop the collective agreements in such a way that they strengthen the Swedish competitiveness?

The notice now been irresponsible. It will affect ordinary people as houses, schools and hospitals will not be built. This at a time when the housing is greater than 50 years. Now it is high time that the building management takes responsibility for all its members around the country.

Authorities: 1 Bahnhof 0.

Now, the police are entitled to obtain information from Internet service providers – regardless of the type of crime involved.

the atmosphere between the Swedish ISP Bahnhof and the police have been strained in recent months.

the police have on five occasions requested the information on subscriptions related to different iP numbers, Bahnhof has consistently refused to disclose information about their clients on the grounds that it is not serious crimes.

– We disclose if it involves serious crimes like terrorism, murder, child pornography – but this is about crime on the border with trifles, says Jon Karlung.

in the end, police reported ISP to the National Post and telecom Agency, PTS, which is the administrative authority for electronic communications, in violation of the law.

fine of five million

on Thursday came the PTS with their decision: leave out data regardless of the crime is involved.

Bahnhof have referred to EU law and believes that European law only approves extradition when dealing with serious crime. But that argument does not bite on the PTS.

– With the right position by the Council at the moment so will the Swedish rules apply pending the adoption of this matter is finally decided in the court, said Staffan Lindmark, a lawyer at PTS .

at the same time threatening the PTS with a fine of five million Bahnhof not disclose the information the police want within a week.

– I think that people in general do not understand this, but go around and think it’s a way to get in terrorism, but the authorities have the right to ask for almost anything any time, he said.

Want information on file sharers

Often the focus is to get information about people who download movies illegally, since the major film companies are driving the issue.

– it is believed that the law used to hunt down terrorists, but it does not. It is usually used to meet various copyright issues to download or stream movies, says Jon Karlung.

Bahnhof is so far the only internet provider as opposed to the Swedish Electronic Communications Act by failing to disclose information to the police.

Dear colleagues,

Today’s announcement concerning notice and negotiations with the trade unions has nothing to do with either the plant’s performance, or any of the employees’ performance. The basic problem we had to deal with, and that can potentially lead to the closure is in place that we have excess capacity, or simply put, more factories than we need.

In light of the above, the question of the factory in Bjuv be closed under consideration. If the plant in Bjuv would need to be closed, the majority of existing production is likely to be focused to the plant in Reken in Germany, whereby the capacity is reduced, thus leading to economies of scale and considerable savings.

in the meantime, I want to personally assure you that I, and other members of senior management, are determined to ensure that everyone will get support during this troubled period until a final decision is taken.

in this regard, I have already taken steps to ensure that there is practical support available to help employees in Bjuv, and further details will be announced today. Do not hesitate in the meantime to discuss any individual questions with your manager or contact Human Resources, while a telephone help line set up.

The management Bjuv will meet the relevant union representatives immediately following today’s announcement to start the negotiation process. We will provide further details on the negotiations and the way forward as soon as we know more.

I assure you personally that I and my colleagues will do everything we can to help you through this difficult time.

Stéfan Descheemaeker

– It was shocking. It was not so much reactions to the big meeting. But then when we met with our immediate bosses were some who cried and many were angry and cursed, said machine repairman Martin Palsson said.

When employees was informed that the drug up to the big meeting in the morning, thought Mattias Palsson it might move on negative news, but nothing near the large notice which was to be presented. According to him, the company has been characterized by confidence and investment in the two years he worked at the factory.

– I took the job there because I felt it was a job for the future, but really so it was not so, he said.

Even no policy , one sees with surprise at the news, which now has major implications for the municipality.

– Findus mean a lot to Bjuv . says Christer Landin (S), First Deputy Chairman of Bjuvs municipal jumping in as deputy mayor.

instead, food company to outsource production to any or some of the other European plants operated by Findus owner, British Nomad foods.

the company is the largest private employer in the municipality, and the closure is a blow.

Christer Landin notes that the new owners, who took over at the end of last year, spoke of a “long-term ownership “.

– it was not so long before.

One reason for the layoffs is the geographical location, type Henrik Hjalmarsson, CEO of Findus Sweden AB.

“Although Sweden and Scandinavia are key markets, the investment in Bjuv longer transport routes and thus higher costs to other major markets like Southern and Western Europe, which in turn makes it harder for us to put ourselves in competition” , it says in a press release.

Now begin negotiations with the union. Hjalmarsson would not speculate on when the negotiations can be completed or layoffs implemented.

“But my focus in the near term is obviously on my team and to find forms of cooperation with the municipality and other relevant organizations, to mitigate the effects of today’s announcement, “he writes.

Findus owned since at the end of 2015 the grocery company Nomad foods, which bought the company of Liongem Sweden for 500 million pounds, about seven billion.

Findus, which had several owners since it was founded in Bjuv 1941, has operations in Norway, Finland, Denmark, Spain and Belgium. The Swedish part had sales in 2014 more than 2.6 billion.

– Tariff system of remuneration experienced by our members as fair and transparent. It is not reasonable to have individual salaries in a workplace where you just hit your head, and where the boss does not see how you care for your job.

Young and cocky, she went to war with the powerful construction union – Swedish Dagbladet

Jessica Löfström, founder and CEO of Expand More. Photo: Anders Ahlgren

Who do you think will get the entrepreneur price SvD Business Bragd? Vote here!

They were not as fond when she was 16 years then went into the construction business with his staffing company, which until then had rented out demonstratriser, receptionists and technicians. Then it was completely different emotions surged.

The story is well known, not least because she even last year was nominated to SvD Business Bragd, but Jessica Löfström had already pushed the two companies when she started Expand More. She had early dreams of becoming a CEO of a major corporation. But with “not even particularly good” grades from upper secondary business studies, it was not so easy.

– So then I start my own company.

Jessica Löfström started by selling moose souvenirs to tourists but it was difficult to make it grow. So it became a company focused on selling wild game under the name “Wild Kitchen” as she finally got Dagab to bite on. But then she got tired. Instead, she went on to rent the butiksdemonstratriser she hired in the kitchen Game to other companies. More professionals added to the business, and when one of the employees fitters wanted Jessica Löfström would hire him out to construction companies, and she saw the social structure of the construction industry, said it clicks.

– I realized that it is an industry that really suitable for temporary staff, it is the construction industry. Large projects that require a lot of specialized staff in less time. We can help to make it more even burden on both companies and employees.

Jessica Löfström thought everyone would cheer. It did not. The construction industry has been characterized by many project positions, and a culture where it is common to lose the job depends on the employer’s temporary occupancy. A precarious labor market has created a strong union.

– And I really appreciate it. Now I understand it, she says.

But then it was war. For several years blocked the construction activity and Jessica Löfström when young and single people without children in a studio in Tumba, got terminate all employees, sell his horse and take extra jobs to run the company’s contravention of the Rules of Court. The so-called Laval verdict in 2005 gave downwind and finally got her to sign a tie-in with the building. (A tie means that an employer has signed a collective agreement with a trade union, editor’s note). It made Jessica Löfström could employ and take up the business again. 2007 signed the collective agreement with a real building, and now give their employees paid wages under the construction contract. Since then, the Group’s sales have grown 28-90 million.

Expand More has now been followed by such Uniflex, Helpman and Pema. You have created a new niche industry.

– Yes, we really, she says. Today I meet ombudsmen from the building who are impressed by what we have done. It is the largest elogen. It feels so awful, bloody funny.

Your entrepreneurship is punctuated by a lot of conflict. What would you do if?

– I would not go to war with one of the world’s strongest unions again, not in the way I did. I was a young, cocky girl and when I meet resistance I become even tougher. It’s very provocative to 50 year old men. They were afraid. And when people get scared they are slightly stupid. I would not use it provocative, harsh jargon of the day, but go much smoother front.

What is your driving force?

– I’m extremely stubborn and I has a very strong fair pathos. I get a lot of energy of challenging things I think are unfair, so that is not good.

What did you not give up?

– I saw an idea that would make the whole system in the construction industry much better. I seriously thought that everyone, even the union, would see it. But when I asked how the building could think it was good that they sent out 40 builders in unemployment simply because they refused to sign a collective agreement with me and they said, “we will sacrifice a few for the sake of it.” You know, then …

She does not end the sentence. But continue:

– I get such force that I know I’m doing something that I know is good. Then I can not to any say no.

What does role models?

– In the beginning, I saw almost none, except Antonia (Ax: son Johnson , editor’s note) then. Today we see Cristina Stenbeck, Annika Falkengren, Gunilla von Platen and more. In 2004, when it was at its heaviest, I listened to a lecture by Monica Lindstedt, who started Hemfrid, when she told me about her entrepreneurial journey, which is very similar to mine. Then I thought that if she could, I’ll do it too.

Now begins the strike wave – Swedish Dagbladet

Photo: Ingvar Karmhed

Already in the fall when the LO’s wage coordination burst, many predicted that it would be a difficult wage negotiations. The time is here now. And the tone is being screwed up properly:

“Building goal is to crack the mark and destroy the Swedish model. A well-paid male-dominated group should get more than others. This is an irresponsible abuse of the conflict weapon,” writes Swedish enterprise’s executive vice president and chief negotiator Peter Jeppsson remarks said.

60 construction companies about 2 600 members will be on strike, in a first stage from 12 april on no agreement with the counterparty Swedish Construction Federation reached before then.

– this is a very extensive notice. I believe that it is much larger than that, says Building Industries Federation negotiator Mats Åkerlind.

Build battle is about the composition and powers of wage formation.

The union wants to defend his right to the chord and a system often give higher pay than regular monthly salary.

– It’s about power over wage formation, says Building Chairman Johan Lindholm.

Employers Party has a small term for issue:

– the union wants to strengthen his power over wage formation. We want to remove the compulsion chord, says Åkerlind.

With that he believes the union influence on the employees to go on chords or monthly.

Conflict The move is the biggest in a long time. The strike comes on the break out to beat the heavy industries and housing – in a first step to a hundred jobs, and that at a time when the construction industry is booming, according to Mats Åkerlind.

Since earlier have paint tray given notice of a strike on the same issues. At the same time raises the collar unions Union and Sweden’s Engineers tone of pensions in negotiations with service industries employer party ALMEGA. The parties are arguing about provisions for better pensions. A solution looks far out.

– We see in the current situation, no feasible way. We are preparing for the full, we have everything in place, says Swedish Association of Graduate Engineers negotiator Camilla Frankelius.

So if there is no solution in place last March, when it will strike?

– Yes … but it can happen that we let them have the opportunity to get on the weekend as well, but then the race is run, says Frankelius.

Meanwhile, wage negotiations in the industry since the unions turned down the employers’ offer.

Cows on the account – Dagens Industri

Forget about urban, rural areas are the new black. And the ultimate trend-setters are farmers themselves.

This year’s Agricultural Outlook Survey shows that young farmers see a brighter future, and that every eight young farmer would recommend others to be a farmer.

Facebook and Instagram bubbles of farmer accounts. And the followers ‘commitment to doing the thumbs up to’ rural-porn “in the form of images and clips with muddy tractors, rooting pigs and balers in action.

Some of the popular accounts where farmers tells us in I-form Ladybird Lina with about 3300 followers on Instagram, and Bondbönans blog with 5200 followers on Facebook. In addition to all these accounts are based on the farms themselves, such Resta farm, Björkfors Väddö farm and dairy.

One of the big pros in this context is Elin Svärdh, 27- year-old dairy farmer in Småland that last winter made the viral success of a cow movie. Her family is followed by 13,800 people on Facebook and 12,700 on Instagram, and she has signed a contract with Ikea to fronta their work with sustainability.

A picture where she stands with a bunch of cows: 1663 likes. A photo on a frosty komule: 1145 likes.

Magnus Kempe on trend research firm Kairos Future has noted the trend of farmers in social media, as well as the media at large.

“Absolutely. At the Super Bowl in the United States two years ago had an advertising message: ‘On the 8th day God created the farmer’. We believe that the reason for this that we are in a precarious time with much change. Many yearn for symbols that stand for security and stability. There is a strong farmer archetype “, says Magnus Kempe.

Dr Karlsson, 39-year-old dairy farmer from Dödevi Öland drives account Bondbönans blog.

“it feels like the followers want it down to earth. Much of our life is so artificial and fixed, for example, on the Internet with blogs about fashion and beauty, “she says.

Shift of power in the model world

The trend of popular accounts of social media consolidates rurbanism trend that emerged about five years ago. Rurbanism about the countryside as a source of inspiration in the city. Clear markers, for example, the well-attended kosläppen, urban farming on rooftops in cities, and the previously hot Hunter boots.

Other signs include last year’s questioning of the urban norm, for example through the Facebook group Rural Girls who have more than 8000 followers. Additional materialization is the new green wave with media personalities in the lead. Some of them are author David Jonstad, current with the book “Grounded” on Ordfront publishers. The book is about that it is the land, rather than the market, which is the future of power. Another example is the blogger and photographer Jonna Jinton as for his 30,400 followers on Instagram depicting life in a village in Västernorrland.

Bond accounts also touches on the most basic, the food supply , says Magnus Kempe. Anything that goes into hipsterkulturen and its passion for authenticity.

“I once met a peasant woman from Gotland. She told me that her daughter, who now lives in Stockholm, suddenly wanted to learn to milk the farm’s cows because “it looks good on CVs”. Her friends thought it was really cool to have cows and able to make cheese, “says Magnus Kempe.

But social media are used not only to photographs of cows in pastoral environments. The accounts are also used as venues for discussions of politics and business.

Magnus Kempe to also be the subjects – the farmers themselves – are not always comfortable with to become regarded as the bearer of ancient rural wisdom.

road to the catwalk

“They do not want to be seen as some Hedenhös or the birth of Noisy but as part of the future. They want to show that they are also using new technologies and challenges, such as low profitability. “

According to Dr Karlsson, much depends on who is looking at.

“I put a clip with cows eating hay. Some thought I had such a quiet job that can stand and listen as they chew, but it is not always. It’s the whole thing with my blog, I show when it goes really bad and when things go well, I want to give the whole picture, “she says.

Criticism of Swedish party funding – Swedish Dagbladet

Criticism persists against Sweden’s rules for political parties to report income and expenses. Greco, a group within the Council of Europe working against corruption, want the rules tightened up.

In a follow-up of previous recommendations GRECO notes that Sweden has done a lot – but that more needs to. It is not sufficient that the parties, by law, must report their income. There is no compulsion to report expenses, assets or liabilities, either for parties or individual candidates. And parties and candidates must not keep separate electoral campaigns, which GRECO has recommended.

There is also no general prohibition against receiving anonymous gifts, says Greco.

The Swedish government will respond on the report before year-end. A politically joint committee is currently reviewing several of the points Greco observes. The study would be completed by the end of April, but has requested a six month extension

Until 2011, 2012, there was no sufficient support in parliament to legislate on the rules for how the parties will fund their activities and how they should report their economy. The turnaround came when the Conservatives gave up its resistance. Prior to the Act, which came into place in April 2014, the parties considered that it was enough voluntary agreements to recognize revenue.
