The ST public employees union is criticizing the Government Offices (“Regeringskansliet”) for using temp agencies without demanding they apply collective bargaining agreements.

ST also tells Swedish Radio News it thinks the government administration is negotiating too hard to keep prices for temp services low. Britta Lejon is the union’s president:

“Here we have a government that is trying to fight for collective bargaining agreements and order on the labor market, and then its own administration pursues this sort of problematic negotiations,” says Britta Lejon, who is herself a former Social Democrat minister and the daughter of a former Social Democrat Justice Minister.

She’s found support within the current Social Democrat-led government. Annelie Roswall-Ljunggren is a permanent secretary at the Ministry of Finance:

“I understand the union’s criticism,” she tells Swedish Radio News. “And since this government has taken over we have worked to make it possible to place these kinds of social and labor legislation demands.”
