No strike, says union, after court ruling

The Swedish Labor Court rejected an appeal from two labor unions that would allow them to strike over pension terms. Now the unions say they won't strike Friday.

Unionen and the Swedish Association of Graduate Engineers had threatened to strike if their demands from the Employers' Organization for the Swedish Service Sector (Almega) were not met. But Almega had benefited from a non-strike agreement, which contractually blocks the unions from striking over disputed pension matters.

The unions had asked the labor court to make an expedited decision about their right to strike over pension issues. The court declined that request.

In a statement Almega says the court's ruling implies that the unions' threat of strike would be illegal.

"Complicated issues like pension terms should be handled peacefully and quietly, without the threat of strike," said the CEO of Almega, Anna-Karin Hatt in the statement.
