Abstract [en]

This article investigates the influence and agency of employers for international labour migration through a case study on networks and migration to a county in Sweden in the decades after the end of the Second World War. Earlier research has focused on the supply-side of networks, such as contacts between migrants and prospective migrants and their place of origin, and how such relations led to cumulative effects, with increased migration over time. This article shows how employers in Västmanland County were, sometimes with the help of government agencies, able to solve their labour requirements through the active creation of migration networks. The article contributes to a deeper understanding of the functions of networks for international migration through developments on the demand-side of labour markets.

Note

During the last decades, the role and coverage of Employment Transitional Agreements (ETA) between the social partners on the labor market have increased. Such agreements are from an international point of view unique and can, therefore, be considered as a typical expression of the Swedish model: employees and employers on a central level concluded similar agreements covering large parts of the labor market. At the same time, these agreements are an expression of something that is contrary to another important aspect of the Swedish model - the state's responsibility for labor market policy. ETAs cover some aspects that according to the textbook model will be the responsibility of the state, not the social partners. How these agreements emerged and developed can thus be seen as a manifestation of the reformulation of the Swedish model. ETAs are thus particularly interesting to examine from a perspective where these agreements are related to the Swedish model. Firstly, these agreements recalibrate the role of the state and the social partners with regard to unemployment protection. Secondly, the initiatives for such agreements came from the movement of white-collar unions - TCO and Saco - not from the Confederation of labor unions LO, who is usually portrayed as the key actor in the formation of the Swedish model. This paper aims to investigate and analyze the historical reasons behind the emergence and development of ETAs and the prominent role of white collar and professional unions in this expansion. Should this trend be seen mainly as a result of an interest in trying to try to compensate for welfare state retrenchment, or should the agreements be seen as an initiative in order to adapt to the working life and the labor market of today and tomorrow? We believe that a closer study of the ETAs history can contribute to a greater understanding of contemporary developments in the Swedish labor market and the Swedish Model.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna rapport är att studera om, och i så fall hur, de arbetstagar-organisationer som företräder läkare (Läkarförbundet) och sjuksköterskor (SHSTF/Vårdförbundet) har försökt inverka på de regleringar som på olika sätt påverkar i utlandet utbildade läkare och sjuksköterskors möjligheter att få legitimation och arbeta i Sverige. Utgångspunkten är att förbunden förväntas försöka påverka regleringar av yrket och förändringar av kraven på i utlandet utbildade yrkesutövare på ett sådant sätt att det minskar (eller håller tillbaka ökningen av) utbudskonkurrensen på deras segment av arbetsmarknaden. Rapportens slutsats är att förbundens politik endast delvis verkar i denna rikt-ning. Det långsiktiga målet att säkerställa yrkets status och ställning tycks i de flesta fall vara viktigare för förbunden, än att på kortare sikt försöka motverka den utbudskonkurrens som invandring och invandrare utgör.

Abstract [en]

The role and importance of employee organizations (i.e., unions) on policies concerning international migration have been studied extensively for decades. However, we know very little about the strategies of the organized interests of health care professionals. This paper will contribute to previous research, both internationally and in the Swedish context, on issues concerning the (re-)action of professional organizations towards migration reforms that might endanger the profession's control over their segment of the labor market. Through a study of the associations representing the two largest licensed health care professions in Sweden – physicians and nurses – the study investigates if, and how, they try to limit the competition in the labor market against reforms that are promoting increased mobility and international migration. The conclusions are mixed, suggesting that the long-term goals of professional associations are more important than strategies that might reduce the competition of foreign-educated practitioners in the short run.
