    On 19 October 1999, after six weeks of industrial action (SE9908186N [1]), a
    new collective agreement for the taxi cab sector was signed between the
    Swedish Road Transport Employers' Association (Biltrafikens
    Arbetsgivarförbund, BA) and the Swedish Transport Workers' Union (Svenska
    Transportarbetareförbundet, Transport). The agreement gives all those
    drivers, telephone operators at taxi companies and limousine chauffeurs with
    a fixed salary a pay rise of SEK 500 per month.

    A new centralised incomes policy agreement seems unlikely to materialise in
    Finland, after the board of the SAK trade union confederation stated on 27
    September 1999 that the preconditions for such an agreement are lacking. This
    was because 10 SAK affiliates announced that they wanted a sector-level
    bargaining round, in order to address sector-specific problems (such as
    outsourcing) that have accumulated under previous centralised agreements. The
    employers, on the other hand, see no need for this.

    At the end of September 1999, a study was published examining the
    significance of labour market and employment conditions for workers'
    willingness to criticise their working environment. Two researchers at the
    National Institute of Working Life (Arbetslivsinstitutet, ALI), professor
    Gunnar Aronsson and Klas Gustafsson, surveyed, with the support of Statistics
    Sweden (Statistiska Centralbyrån), some 3,800 individuals. The study
    indicates, among other findings, that employees in the public sector are not
    better off in terms of freedom of speech than workers in the private sector.
    The tendency is rather in the opposite direction.

    A pay agreement for 60,000 building workers was concluded on 11 October 1999
    by the employers' organisation, the Swedish Construction Federation
    (Byggentreprenörerna), and the Building Workers' Union (Svenska
    Byggnadsarbetareförbundet, Byggnads). The agreement provides for a pay rise
    of 3%, which is the current norm among most Swedish pay agreements expiring
    on 31 March 2001. The new construction agreement will expire on the same date
    and is hence valid for 18 months.

    Privatisation and the competitive tendering of municipal services have been
    important issues on the political agenda during the general election campaign
    in spring 1999, and especially in the municipal government election campaign
    in September 1999. The political parties of the right have stressed increased
    use of competitive tendering, and a handbook on the issue was published by
    the Conservative Party (Høyre) prior to the elections.

    On 14 July 1999, ministers at the Department for Education and Employment
    published their response to proposals [1] made by the Equal Opportunities
    Commission (EOC) for a new Sex Equality Act to replace the UK's current sex
    equality legislation (UK9901175N [2]). While announcing action in a number of
    areas, including some changes to existing legislation, education and
    employment secretary David Blunkett said that the government "does not
    believe that major legislative change at this stage is the most effective way
    of bringing about the changes that are needed".
