This is Kommunal, the Swedish Municipal Workers’ Union (English / engelska)
Kommunal is a trade union in Sweden with more than 500,000 members. We are active at municipal level and in county councils, the Church, cooperatives, private or municipal companies and land management.
Members of Kommunal take care of the elderly, prepare school lunches and take care of children in preschool. We drive buses, put out fires, sweep chimneys and drive ambulances. We look after animals kept in zoos, tend to the green on the golf courses and drive combine harvesters in the fields.
We work in the interests of our members
The trade union Kommunal is here to defend the interests of its members on the labour market and in society in general. Kommunal is seeking to ensure good terms of employment and working conditions, a good work environment and that members are given influence, training and opportunities for development.
Kommunal also has a strong involvement at an international level, where we are striving to improve terms and conditions for members and employees in Sweden and employees in other parts of the world. We pursue these activities through different international trade union organisations and in ways such as seeking to influence the decisions made at EU level.
