In the last week, got Opo with a figure of a new wage agreement, which assumes that wages should be determined for a period of three years. The unions in the industry, IF Metall, the Union, its Life, the GS and the Swedish association of graduate engineers – based on their requirements in the fall on a one-year deal.
Either the tray or the employer of the possibility of a three-year contract, but from the very beginning, far away from each other. The unions in the industry would like to have a 3 per cent annual wage increase, plus a provision for a pension, and a låglönesatsning. The counterparties for, inter alia, the association of Swedish engineering industries, and Industriarbetsgivarna, offers, up 1.4 per cent, and that of the total increase in costs.

On the other side of his table, sitting among the others, Thomas Undine, 's head of negotiations in the association of Swedish engineering industries. He said:
" We have a well-ordered sequence, with the opo, the negotiations are in progress. We should not act in panic, but of course you have to be prepared to re-examine past decisions. This is actually one of the most troublesome of which is that it will be such a big change at the end of the negotiation process. It all goes by so fast, the market conditions are at the time.
" No, but I think it is not out of the question to get. In such a case, it is the Opo that is to take the lead. We will be open for a three-year contract, one-year contract, or it could be that we are extending the current agreement remains in force at the time, the so-called prolongering.
