Abstract [sv]

Denna uppsats handlar om restaurangbranschen och hotell- och restaurangfacket. Medlingsinstitutet presenterar varje år en rapport som innefattas av statistik om hur den fackliga medlemskapsutvecklingen sett ut under året i olika branscher. Hotell- och restaurangfackets organisationsgrad visade år 2015 28 % vilket gör hotell- och restaurangfacket till Sveriges minsta fackförening. Uppsatsen utgår ifrån en kvalitativ ansats och syftar till att förklara hotell- och restaurangfackets utmärkande organisationsgrad. Denna förklaring söker vi genom att undersöka sociala faktorer inom restaurangbranschen och var restaurangarbetaren förankrar sin trygghet samt hur trygghetsförankringen kan förstås. Empirin samlas in via semi-strukturerade intervjuer vilka utgår ifrån följande teman: trygghet, sammanhållning, lojalitet, flexibilitet och attityd till hotell- och restaurangfacket. Som teoretisk ansats har vi valt att använda oss av sociologen Karl Polanyis och hans förklaring om det inbäddade samhället. Vår studie tyder på att stark social sammanhållning inom restaurangbranschen uppfyller individens trygghetsbehov i tillräcklig utsträckning för att ett fackligt medlemskap är att betrakta som överflödigt. Eftersom restaurangarbetarens trygghetsbehov redan uppfylls av de sociala relationerna inom restaurangbranschen så blir det inte rationellt för restaurangarbetaren att ansluta sig till hotell- och restaurangfacket.

Abstract [en]

This paper is about the hospitalityindustry and hotel and restaurant union. Mediation Office presents an annual report contained statistics on union membership trends during the past year in various industries. In 2015 the hotel- and restaurant union organization rate showed 28 % which makes the hotel- and restaurant union Sweden's smallest union. The essay is based on a qualitative approach and aims to explain the hotel- and restaurant union peculiar degree of organization. This explanation we seek by examining social factors in the hospitalityindustry and where restaurantworkers anchor their security and how the security anchor can be understood. The empirical data collected through semi-structured interviews, which are based on the following themes: security, shared attitude, loyalty, flexibility and attitude to the hotel and restaurant union. As a theoretical approach has been chosen to use the sociologist Karl Polanyi and his declaration of the embedded community. Our study suggests that strong social stance shared in the restaurant sector meet individual security needs adequately to a union membership is regarded as superfluous. Since the restaurant worker's securityneeds are already met by the social relations within the hospitalityindustry it will not be rational for restaurant workers to join the hotel- and restaurant union.
