    Abstract [en]

    The European labor movements developed in different directions during the twentieth century. The class formation literature has tried to explain these differences but left unexplored the internal dynamics of the labor movement and, above all, the differences in ideological schooling. Workers’ education constitutes a forum for ideological schooling of members, and these educational settings can be identity constitutive and thus play an important part in the class formation process. In this article I analyze the institutions for workers’ education in Sweden and Britain and I suggest that the variation of the design and practices of workers’ education had an impact on the movements’ developments in terms of identity formation and cohesiveness.

    Consensus and Discipline - Constructing Identity in the Swedish Trade Union Confederation2010Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper aims at examining the role of trade union leaders in the construction of a strong cohesive class identity and its implications for the formation of a unitary labour movement. Class identity and mobilization constitute important factors for developing unitary class organizations which in turn play an important role for the establishment and sustainability of the welfare state. Based on a study of minutes, letters, annual reports and diaries I argue that the leadership of the Swedish Trade Union Confederation for blue collar workers, the LO, strategically decided to construct a strong reformist and consensus promoting identity as a response to the growing left wing threat in the organization and the troublesome high strike level. Through image management, the leadership implemented the reformist consensus image of the organization on the grass root level in Sweden in the 1930s using the newly established education system. Thus the leadership became the driving force in the class identity formation process using education as the tool for the identity formation process. This enabled the leadership to establish a closer cooperation with the employers and to build a strong trade union movement, as it turns out, the strongest in the world.

    Constructing Disciplined Workers - Managing Identity Formation in the Early Swedish Trade Unions2009Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Class identity and mobilization constitute important factors for the understanding of the development and sustainability of the welfare state; therefore these issues are thoroughly studied within the social sciences. However, prior research has primarily assigned technical developments in the industry to be the driving force of class mobilization. I claim that to fully understand class formation and trade unionism, the variable identity must be considered since organizational identity is crucial for organizations in general and, I claim, for trade unions in particular because of their nature as voluntary organizations being vulnerable to membership losses. Marx stated that a class in itself does not necessarily lead to class for itself; the trade union leaders need to construct the cohesive glue of identity. This paper aims at examining the role of trade union leaders in the construction of a strong cohesive identity in the Swedish Trade Union Confederation for blue collar workers, the LO, in the 1920s and 1930s. Based on a study of historical documents I argue that the LO constructed a strong reformist and consensus focused identity with its roots in social democracy. Through image management they managed to implement this image on the grass root level in Sweden in the 1930s using the newly established educational system. The Swedish case is particularly interesting because Swedish trade unionism is characterized by highly organized and disciplined workers; if organizational identity in trade unions is a result of deliberate identity politics from trade union leaders we would find support for that in this particular case. Most research on trade unions in Sweden has dealt with the elites of the organizations and their road towards consensus and cooperation with the employers assuming discipline and class formation, thus the process of identity construction within the trade unions is yet to be examined. By filling this gap we can improve our understanding of how the working class of Sweden could be formatted into a strong cohesive actor in the 1930s and how the spirit of consensus became a characteristic and important feature of the Swedish labour market.

    Creating Tax-Compliant Citizens in Sweden: The role of Social Democracy2018In: The Leap of Faith: The Fiscal Foundations of Successful Government in Europe and America / [ed] Sven H. Steinmo, Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2018, p. 56-78Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    As discussed by Nistotskaya and D'Arcy in Chapter 2 on Sweden, a long tradition of generally high-quality institutions has paved the way for excellent state capacity. This chapter focuses on the twentieth century, a time when Sweden developed into a high-tax-rate country with extraordinary tax compliance—a unique combination. Sweden underwent a profound transformation in the middle of the twentieth century: The Social Democratic Party (Socialdemokratiska arbetarpartiet, or SAP) won the 1932 election and stayed in office for forty-four consecutive years. High union density and corporatism introduced in the postwar period gave extensive powers to the union movement and to employers' organizations. The “golden age” of social democracy—the 1950s and 1960s—was characterized by full employment, an expanding welfare state system that included benefits such as comprehensive all-inclusive social insurance schemes, and diminishing wage inequality. It was in this context that Sweden transformed from a country with low tax rates to a country with high tax rates. Swedes are today among the most heavily taxed people in the world. Interestingly, Sweden also has the highest level of tax compliance, an unexpected combination. How was such a transition possible? This chapter focuses on the sense-making of the tax system. More specifically, I examine how the SAP tried to create and reproduce tax morale while upholding the state's capacity to collect taxes. In democracies, governments need the electorate's support for their policies, regardless of the capacity of the state; of course, how citizens perceive politics is also important for winning elections. The political elite can play a crucial role by making sense of policies.

    From movement to organization: Constructing identity in Swedish trade unions2013In: Labor history, ISSN 0023-656X, E-ISSN 1469-9702, Vol. 54, no 3, p. 301--320Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study argues that re-formation of working-class identity was crucial for the construction of a cohesive labour movement in Sweden. Analysis of the materials used in trade union study circles in the 1920s and 1930s reveals that the organizational identity constructed by the leadership was closely linked to the organization as a phenomenon rather than to the class structure on which it was based. This was a response to the left-wing organizations, communists and syndicalists, that challenged the reformist labour movement in the 1920s and an attempt to create unity in the reformist branch of the labour movement.

    How does revitalization affect identity in the trade union movement?2016Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The trade union movement has been put under considerable pressure the past thirty years. Thetrend is global: trade unions’ political influence and bargaining power have been pushed back asa result from globalization, and membership numbers have plummeted. As a response to thedevelopment, numerous attempts to "revitalize" the trade union movement have beenemployed. Scholars of industrial relations have taken an interest in these revitalizationprocesses and analyzed the strategies to reverse the trend. However, the research field hastaken less an interest in the internal changes that such renewal processes imply for the unions,a gap in our knowledge about trade unions that this paper aims to fill. More specifically, the paper aims to investigate how self‐perceptions changed as a result from a thorough renewalprocess in the Swedish trade union formerly known as SKTF (Svenskakommunaltjänstemannaförbundet), nowadays Vision.

    In order to capture self‐perceptions I examine the internal educations of SKTF. There are severalgood reasons for focusing on educations when analyzing identity: organizations’ educationalsettings constitute the forum where members – new and old – are taught the aim of theorganization and how to act as organization members, this is the arena in which values arediscussed and ideological schooling takes place. Consequently, material used in such educationsshould express identity and culture of the organization, and if we want to study how renewalprocesses impact self‐perceptions, this is a good material to use. I analyze the internaleducations of SKTF during the time period 1970‐2015.

    Manufacturing Consensus: The Making of the Swedish Reformist Working Class2012Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The 1910s were a precarious time for the labor movement. The Russian Revolution in 1917 sparked a trend towards radicalization among labor organizations and communist organizations spread all over Europe. These organizations challenged existing notions of the “worker,” causing an identity crisis in class organizations. Suddenly, there were not only workers, but different kinds of workers, promoting not only social democracy and syndicalism, but also communism. The labor movement became fragmented. This was very much the case in Sweden. However, despite the conflict situation during the interwar period, the Swedish workers were integrated into a strong cohesive labor movement, united under the banner of reformism which, in turn, paved the way for a strong social democracy.

    How was this possible? This study presents an explanation of why the Swedish working class so unanimously adopted reformism. Its thesis is that the leadership of the Trade Union Confederation (LO) was well aware of the identity problems the leftwing factions had created for the reformist unions. Because of this, the leadership decided to take actions.  As “identity entrepreneurs” the leaders re-formed the notion of the worker by constructing an organizational identity that downplayed class struggle and embraced discipline, peaceful solutions to labor market problems, and cooperation with the employers. This notion was inculcated in the workers through popular education. The book shows that ABF study circles became the main tool of the Trade Union Confederation’s identity policy in the 1920s and 1930s and its successful outcome paved the way for the renowned “Swedish Model.”

    Paving the way for the Class Compromise: Constructing Consensus Identity in the Early Swedish Trade Union2009Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Most research on the Basic Agreement between the LO and the SAF that was closed in Saltsjöbaden in 1938 has dealt with the elites of the organizations and their road towards consensus and cooperation. I claim that the success of the agreement cannot be fully understood without integrating the grass roots in the analysis, an aspect that has been largely ignored. The grass roots could easily have overthrown the agreement through strikes but instead the Agreement gained support among the members. I argue that the LO constructed a collective identity compatible with this new relationship to capital, and by doing that the organization could implement the consensus spirit on the grass root level and discipline the members. A systematic in-depth analysis of the trade union educational material clearly shows that the LO constructed an identity of the organization that mirrored the new relation between labour and capital. The trade union member was a true reformist person that put a lot of value in following rules adopted democratically by the organization and the LO was a constantly growing politically important force. The employers were depicted as close friends to the workers while the political right because of their attempts to meddle in the labour market through legislation was an enemy. Another enemy was the SAC, the syndicalists that were demonized as irresponsible and irrational, an organization without clear goals; the SAC was everything the LO was not. The Basic Agreement and the identity politics pursued by the LO are not only important components for explaining the development of the Swedish model, they also reflect the formation of the Swedish labour movement into one strong, centralized, cohesive actor that came to play an important role in the development of the Swedish welfare state.

    Abstract [sv]

    Under 1910-talet utmanades den reformistiska grenen av den svenska arbetarrörelsen av syndikalistiska och kommunistiska organisationer i Sverige. Utvecklingen är inte unik för Sverige, tvärtom. Uppkomsten av flera olika arbetarorganisationer fick effekten att det plötsligt inte längre fanns bara en enda politisk innebörd i begreppet arbetare i Sverige utan flera, vilket utmanade de reformistiska organisationerna. Uppkomsten av flera definitioner av arbetaren resulterade i en identitetskris inom framförallt LO, vilket föranledde ledarna för LO att vidta åtgärder. I denna process blev folkbildningsinstitutionerna ett viktigt instrument för att konstruera en enhetlig identitet inom arbetarrörelsen. I centrum för denna process stod en handfull personer som genom sitt engagemang för arbetarrörelsens idéer och för folkbildning kom att spela en viktig roll för bildningsarbetets ställning inom fackföreningsrörelsen. Denna artikel syftar till att framförallt belysa en persons betydelse för folkbildningen som identitetsskapande instrument inom LO, Sigfrid Hansson, och hur hans medverkan fick betydelse för etablerandet av folkbildning som en viktig del av det fackliga arbetet under 1920- och 1930-talen.

    Mobilizing and educating via social media: How do Swedish trade unions use YouTube?2015Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Trade unions have faced a significant problem of member decline for several decades even in the countries with the traditionally high union membership. The use of social media has been proposed as important revitalization strategy which allows reaching to new audiences. The purpose of this study is to examine how different Swedish trade unions have accomplished this task by investigating and assessing their use of YouTube. We expect that the represented social class: working, white-collar or upper-middle-class, influences how unions use social media. Results based on a quantitative and qualitative analysis of numerous YouTube videos demonstrate that working class unions use YouTube for mobilization, while white-collar unions focus more on existing members and upper middle class unions aim to educate their own profession. All unions also use YouTube for improving the transparency of the organizations by posting a significant number of videos about annual congresses, as well as promote the traditional labor movement issues such as salaries, equality and welfare.

    Abstract [en]

    This article describes and analyses how small protests against the construction of hydropower plant at local level can take a national scale and lead to a rare occasion where Swedish parliament overruns a governmental decision. This event in 1979 had significant consequences for the government, which had to pay 270 million crone compensation to the enterprise that was willing to build the plant in Sölvbacka in northern Sweden. With the reference to the research on political consequences of social movements, we propose that this small group of local activists achieved their goals thanks to the continued protests, help of significant political allies at the local and national level, and the general political context which dominated in Sweden after the elections in 1979. The study demonstrates that even small groups of citizens in the remote areas can have an impact on environmental or energy politics by sustaining its mobilisation and gaining support from important political allies.

    The untapped possibilities of YouTube as a trade union tool2018Other (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    A majority of the trade union confederations in the European Union (EU), Switzerland and Norway use YouTube actively; 80 confederations have uploaded more than 13,000 videosbetween 2007 and 2016. On average, this accounts for just over one video per month and about 2,000 videos per year.

    Unions’ YouTube videos differ greatly in length and popularity, ranging from 3 seconds to 10 hours, and from 0 to 860,000 views and up to 3,000 likes.

    There are at least two broad types of uploaded videos: videos supporting politicalcampaigns and union activism and informative videos about union activities (such ascongresses) or about particular professions.

    Due to its huge young audience, YouTube offers great potential for unions to reach groupsthat have traditionally been difficult to organise, but as of yet only a few unions seem to be using YouTube effectively.

    In the context of information overload on the internet, videos with a political message or professional-standard production are the most likely to go viral.
