Abstract [en]

The article compares how low-wage competition and labour migration from EU11 Member States affect industrial relations and working conditions for natives and migrants in three sectors (transport, cleaning and agriculture) in Denmark and Sweden. The analysis shows how already vulnerable sectors with below-average union density and collective agreements-especially geographical dispersed sectors-are strongly affected.
