Abstract [en]

In Sweden the unadjusted gender pay gap was 11.3 percent and the adjusted 4.3 percent in 2017. The Discrimination Act states that in order to discover, remedy and prevent unfair gender differences in pay and other terms of employment, the employer is to annually survey and analyse provisions and other terms of employment that are used by the employer, and pay differences between women and men performing work that is to be regarded as equal or of equal value (Section 8). Employers who employ ten or more workers are to document in writing their work on pay surveys. Employers and employees are to cooperate in this work.

The social partners are responsible for wage formation in Sweden. The degree of organisation is high both among employers and employees. There are around 55 employer organisations and 60 unions. There are 668 national collective agreements about wages and general terms of employment.1 Negotiations may take place on the central as well as on the local level. Central wage formation is most common in the private sector while local wage formation is most common in the public sector. In 2018, 65 percent of the employed men and 72 percent of the employed women were members of a union and the share of employees covered by collective agreements was 89 percent.
