Resolution on education and digitalization

Digitalization is proceeding at an ever-increasing rate. Digitalization affects our lives on many levels. Both private and working life. The digitalization can provide a number of benefits for the individual, for companies, for the public sector and for the whole community. It can be said that all types of jobs are or will be affected by digitalization and parts of the job will require digital competencies.

In this development, it is crucial to realize and remember that in the end of the day it is the skilled labor force who makes this happen. Therefore, education is the prerequisite for individuals, businesses and society to benefit the most from digitalization. Both individuals, companies and society, have a responsibility here: employees need willingness to learn and acquire new skills, companies are to support – in time and preferably also as concrete training opportunities – and politicians as well as public authorities need to offer financial resources, flexible re- and uptraining models and possibly tax reduction schemes.

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.

European Arctic Policy

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.

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.

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.

EU’s klima- og energi aftale: Et vigtigt skridt fremad

ClausJensen 300

Claus Jensen, Formand CO-industri, Danmark

Natten til den 24. oktober lykkedes det for EU’s stats- og regeringschefer at opnå enighed om en ny klima- og energiaftale. Det skete efter Marathon forhandlinger, ikke bare på selve topmødet, men så sandelig også i den lange proces frem mod topmødet. Det var ikke en givet ting, at EU ville kunne nå til enighed om bindende mål for klima- og energipolitikken.

Det er lykkedes nu. Det er en stor succes for det europæiske samarbejde og for den fremtidige klima- og energipolitik.
