Employer's representation in wage bargaining with The Education Association

The project will provide a description of the historical background of the bargaining system where the teachers were having the state as a counterparty in wage negotiations, and explain why the employer’s representation was transferred from the state to the municipalities in 2004. The study will also look into the conditions for wage negotiations in the municipalities after 2004, and identify factors important to the development of the two bargaining sectors today.
