Abstract [sv]

Traditionally, the union has held an important place in Swedish working life. The dynamic nature of today's working life, however, has brought about changes in the needs of union members, compelling unions to adapt accordingly. A common approach to dealing with this issue has been union mergers, which can lead to advantages of scale, broader membership representation, and greater negotiating leverage. A common problem with union mergers, however, is that the majority of them are not carried through to completion. A limited amount of research has been dedicated to trying to explain why it is so difficult to carry out union mergers. This study investigates a failed merger (TriO) amongst four unions within the Swedish Confederation of Professional Employees (TCO). The aim of this study is to investigate those factors that can be considered important when facing a merger, such as information and support, and the general attitude of union members. The results show that there are clear differences between the unions, as well as within the unions, regarding, for example, knowledge of the planned merger, and attitudes toward union mergers.
