Economy and Labour

Trade unions and labour relations in the 21st century have to face transformations due to changing membership density, policy factors, factors such as globalization and intensified free trade, labour migration and an insecure financial market. There is a possibility to come out stronger from these changes: organization beyond national borders and along value chains is a prime example of intensified and transnational trade union dialogue for the future.

How to shape these transformations from a labour movement’s perspective and to foster labour relations and trade union organization even in the future is one of the FES Nordic Countries’ central fields of interest.
