Anders Neergaard and Charles Woolfson

This chapter explores the current dynamics of the so-called ‘Swedish model’ of industrial relations based upon neocorporatist ‘self-regulation’ by the main labour market actors. The chapter suggests that labour migration in particular has added new and complex ingredients to the previous underpinnings of that model, shifting the balance of power between employers and trade unions, and in important respects, it may now be a ‘model in dissolution’. For trade unions, labour migration to Sweden, both on a temporary and more permanent basis, now poses in the context of the neoliberal reconstruction of Sweden’s economy and society sharp dilemmas in terms of how to respond to resultant significant changes in the nature of employment and their impacts on a previously well-ordered labour market.
