AMF Scandal

Wanja Lundby-Wedin Leaves AMF Board

The head of Sweden’s Trade Union Confederation (LO) Wanja Lundby-Wedin has left the board of pension company AMF as well as several other board positions. It follows a meeting on Sunday of Swedish union bosses which was called after Saturday’s announcement by Social Democrat leader Mona Sahlin that Lundby-Wedin should leave the AMF board.

Wanja Lundby-Wedin had been the subject of torrid newspaper headlines that she and the rest of the AMF board  approved of large pension payments to the retiring boss of AMF.

The revelations rocked the Trade Union Confederation and the Social Democrats whose party secretary Ibrahim Baylan on Saturday directly linked a poor showing in a public opinion poll to the AMF/LO scandal. Subsequently the party’s leader Mona Sahlin announced that Lundby-Wedin should step down from the AMF board.

Wanja Lundby- Wedin herself said earlier that she was tricked into approving the AMF pension payment.
