The Network was launched in April 2016 with the purpose of uniting Ericsson trade unions from around the world; sharing essential information and practices; protecting workers’ rights to organize and bargain collectively; and engaging with the company in global dialogue.
The network is a joint initiative of UNI Global Union, IndustriALL Global Union and the Swedish Unions at Ericsson.
The meeting focused on the latest developments at Ericsson globally and discussions addressed:
- Information exchange and union activities in each country
- Developing strategy on organizing including supply chains
- Ericsson’s policy on social responsibility and human rights
- Communication and coordination among unions
Participants welcomed company management to the second day of the meeting to exchange views on Ericsson’s corporate social responsiblity policy and its implementation.
As a result of the meeting, the Ericsson trade union network adopted a revised strategic plan and participants agreed on cross-border cooperation and solidarity actions to develop organizing strategies and advance social dialogue with the company worldwide.
Ericsson is a multinational networking and telecommunications company headquartered in Stockholm.
