Swedish engineering employers: the search for industrial peace in the absence of centralised collective bargaining

Peter Sheldon, Louise Thornthwaite

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The Swedish engineering employers' association recently shifted away from the dramatic decentralisation of bargaining it had pioneered. Behind this shift were employer desires for better guarantees of industrial peace. The authors conclude by stressing the importance of the relationships between employer strategy, historical contingency and debates on bargaining structure.
