Nordic IN - Industrianställda i Norden - Pohjoismaiden Teollisuustyöntekijät

Ny ledning till Nordic IN

Claus Jensen, ordförande för CO-industri (Danmark), blev vald som den nya ordföranden för Industrianställda i Norden. Valet var enhällig och tog plats i slutet av juni i Reykjavik, där INs högsta beslutsorgan, Nordiskt Forum hade sitt möte.

Forumet valde också tre viceordförande, nämligen Marie Nilsson (IF Metall, Sverige), Riku Aalto (Industrifacket, Finland) och Lise Lyngsnes Randeberg (Tekna, Norge).

IN fick också en ny generalsekreterare efter Jens Bundvad, som tog hand om organisationen för åtta år. Nordiskt Forum valde Reijo Paananen till posten för en mandatperiod av fyra år.

Efter angrebet i Stockholm

Til ordföranden i de svenske IN medlemsorganisationer

Kære venner

Der er med forfærdelse vi følger nyhederne om lastbil-angrebet i Stockholm. Som Stefan Löfven har sagt tyder alt på at der er tale om terror. Der er i dag intet sted, som er sikkert. En ungdomslejr i Utøya, en nationaldag i Nice, et julemarked i Berlin eller en fredag eftermiddag i Stockholm. Dette er et spørgsmål om ekstremisme, ikke religion eller politisk overbevisning. Terrorens mål er at ramme uskyldige mennesker og sprede frygt. Vi må ikke lade terroristerne bestemme. Vore demokratiske samfund skal og vil vinde. Vores solidaritet er med det svenske folk og vore tanker er med ofrene og deres pårørende.

 

To the presidents of the Swedish IN affiliates

Dear friends
It is with horror that we follow the news of the truck attack in Stockholm. As Stefan Löfven has said, everything indicates that this is an act of terror. Today no place is safe. A youth camp in Utøya, a national day in Nice, a Christmas market in Berlin or a peaceful Friday in Stockholm. This is a question of extremism, not religion or political conviction. The goal of terror is to hit innocent people and create fear. We cannot let the terrorists decide. Our democratic society must and will win. Our solidarity is with the Swedish people and our thoughts go to the victims and their families.

Et europa for alle europæere
Et stærkere socialt Europa

EU People 300

Storbritanniens beslutning om at forlade EU er en udfordring for os alle. Den britiske afstemning afspejler den skuffelse, mangel på indflydelse og manglende tillid, som også findes i andre dele af Europa. Afstemningens resultat er et slag i ansigtet til den eksisterende europæiske konstruktion og det bekræfter, at den sociale dimension i Europa ikke omfatter alle. Et stærkere socialt Europa er en nøglereaktion på dette.

Strong Nordic IN reservations to European Parliament’s draft report on an integrated European Union policy for the Arctic

The Nordic IN finds the paragraphs 13, 14 and 41 in the European Parliament draft report on an integrated European Union policy for the Arctic to be highly problematic and not in line with the usual practice of scientifically based decision-making in the European institutions. The Nordic-IN will therefore urge the European Parliament not to adopt the three paragraphs as they stand in the plenary vote on this report.

After the election of Donald Trump

white house 300

The victory of Donald Trump in the American presidential election came as a surprise to the vast majority of experts and contradicted numerous opinion polls.

The election of Trump points to deep-seated divisions in American society: frustration among many Americans with the political system; large groups which have seen no increase in real income for several decades; unemployment in former industrial core areas; and continued social insecurity for many Americans.

Unfortunately there is no indication that Donald Trump can or will do anything to diminish these underlying problems.

The British majority to leave the EU is a challenge for us all

Brexit

After an increasingly shrill campaign, the majority of the British people yesterday voted to leave the European Union.

This poses a serious challenge to us all.

First of all we need to remain calm, but we also need to decide how to deal with this new situation.

For our British colleagues there is the major challenge of how to create a solution for British society and the British economy after the vote. The proponents for Britain to leave have presented no real plan for what happens now and it is up to the responsible parts of British society, including the trade union movement, to create a future for Britain with social responsibility and economic stability. We should do what we can to help them in this effort.
