EU Court Takes Up Swedish Labor Row

Published tisdag 9 januari 2007 kl 11.51

The European Court of Justice has begun proceedings on a case involving labor rights in Sweden.

It goes back to 2004 when a Latvian company started construction on a school in Vaxholm, north of Stockholm. Swedish unions blockaded the site, and ultimately forced construction to close down, after the Latvian company refused to pay its workers according to Swedish pay scales and contracts.

The building company says Swedish labor legislation violates European Union rules, and the Swedish Labor Court has referred the case to the EU court in Luxembourg.
