Priority objectives for international activities

The Swedish Trade Union Confederation (LO) and its affiliated national unions have drawn up this international strategy for 2021-2025. The strategy determines the focus and highlights the priority objectives LO has for international activities in the relevant period.

The strategy is based on the power imbalance between labour and capital in the global arena. It sets the goal for workers in the global labour market to be covered by fundamental trade union rights and rightfully take a greater share of the globalised economy’s added value.

This is to be achieved through global solidarity work in existing formal and informal structures. The focus is on achieving a balance between labour and capital in collaboration with relevant organisations through a sustainable transition process.
