Abstract [en]

The theme of the article is knowledge and learning within the Swedish workers’ trade union movement. The aim of the article is to describe how the movement have viewed learning and schooling historically, and to discuss the current point of view. Knowledge useful to the movement has always been seen as the most valuable. The interpretation of what knowledge that is and how it best is learned has varied. Today trade unions at the workplaces are expected to have the capability to formulate needs of knowledge and to conduct learning independently. The everyday work in two local trade union boards have been studied and analysed by socio cultural theory of learning in order understand what learning the everyday activities shape. The article presents important aspects of the result. Contemporary changes in working life mean continuous demands of new knowledge. The local trade unions studied cannot handle these demands of learning on their own. It’s discussed as overpowering demands of learning.
