Abstract [en]

This study reflects on the swedish model and the models future. The swedish model

means that legisilation acts with the collective agreements . The wage issue is not

regulated by law instead it is managed by the social partners in the form of collective

agreements. In 2008, a report was presented by the Commission on a joint regulation of

the minimum wage for all EU countries. The issue has become increasingly

controversial and was especially disccused for the election of candidates to the

European Parlament last spring. Such regulation as the comission proposed leads to a

threat to the Swedish labour model. Therefore the aim of this study was to illuminate

the Swedish model and to study alternative solutions to the model in an international

perspective. A method with sociology of law perspective was chosen and considered

suitable to answer the purpose of the study. This study indicates that the swedish model

is a succesfull model but the model is facing several challenges. Due to the swedish

membership in EU we have to considerate both national and international law and these

are not allways compatible. The model embrace a high number of employees but there

are some groups of people that are excluded. Thoose who are excluded are not

organized in the union like post workers and young adult workers. It is abious that the

model sustains limits and there fore a good complement could be collective agreements

with erga omnes effect.
