Swedish collective bargaining framework to regulate platform work

The Swedish Entrepreneurship Forum, a policy research organisation with a focus on entrepreneurship and small enterprise development, finds a tendency in the Swedish platform economy to voluntarily sign sectoral collective bargaining agreements. A questionnaire filled by senior management of platforms in 2018 reveals that the rationale for these voluntary agreements stems from the platform’s desire to appeal as a ’fair option’, as well as to get access to skilled employees in a tight labour market.
