This model was put under pressure during the economic crisis of 2010, which, especially in the automo-tive sector, suddenly caused a number of redundancies impossible to reabsorb in the short time. The social parties and the Government started a relevant debate concerning how to solve the emergency. While the latter stuck to the classical method, refusing direct support to the companies, part of the former looked for new solutions. After an uneasy confrontation it was signed a new temporary framework agreement (only applicable to blue collars), that allowed employers to layoff workers and, until a certain cap, to do not compensate the layoff period. However no public money was involved in this scheme.
The positive results achieved led in the following years to some important modifications of the Swedish model of handling enterprises’ crisis, with the implementation of two new systems, one bipartite and one requiring the intervention of some administrative bodies and public money.
