Sweden: Right to health and safe work is always a priority for the Swedish Painters’ Union – #iwmd23

The Swedish painters’ union is in the middle of negotiations for a new collective agreement. We risk ending up in a no-deal situation with possible conflict. As a result, we will do everything possible to avoid this happening.
The right to a safe and healthy working environment is always high on the union’s agenda. We have taken many battles throughout the years to ensure that our members do not risk suffering accidents that prevent them from coming home from work in the end of the working day.
The occupational health and safety issue is constantly relevant both in Sweden and all around the world.
Today is International Workers’ Memorial Day and through our delegation for collective bargaining, we want to contribute and highlight that occupational health and safety is a fundamental principle and right at work.
