Ericsson unions convene to global meeting
On 5-6 April, trade unions representing employees of the Swedish multinational company Ericsson gathered in Djurö, Sweden, for the second meeting of the Ericsson Global Trade Union Network. The participants discussed the latest developments in Ericsson globally, the competitive landscape that Ericsson operates in, and the situation in Ericsson in different countries. Particular attention was also paid to the company’s supply chain and to trends regarding the insourcing of jobs to Ericsson from traditional telecom operators.
The Ericsson Global Trade Union Network was launched in April 2016 with the purpose of uniting Ericsson trade unions from around the world, sharing essential information and best practices, protecting workers’ rights to organize and bargain collectively, and engaging with the company in global dialogue.
The Trade Union Network is supported by both UNI Global Union and IndustriALL Global Union and thus represents employees in servicing as well as manufacturing divisions of Ericsson.
