Done with new contract for electrician

The agreement is at the so-called mark of 7.4 percent – ​​4.1 percent in the first year and 3.1 percent in the second year, plus 0.2 in extra pension provisions.

The electricians’ head of negotiations, Mikael Pettersson, highlights in a press release several “improvements in terms and conditions” as measures to “counteract wage dumping, unhealthy competition and a poor working environment”.

“We are well aware that the wage increases do not correspond to the cost increases in society at large. Here the politicians need to do more to support the most financially vulnerable groups,” says Pettersson.

The agreement, which concerns more than 15,000 union members, means in practice that an electrician on average receives a salary increase of approximately SEK 2,600 over two years.
