Post Strike Called Off
Swedes could send their bills, Dear John letters and correspondence as usual on Monday.
The threatened postal strike was avoided with both employers and employees agreeing to a compromise deal. Harriet Lövén from Almega, a forum for service companies, told Swedish Radio news that she is happy the strike was avoided but said the pay system which will now be enforced will make it difficult to work with individual salary agreements.
The deal is said to be worth 7,9 percent over three years and 25 000 workers in the communication branch are affected.
