Abstract english

I artikeln diskuteras de fackliga a-kassornas betydelse för den internationellt mycket höga fackliga organisationsgraden i Sverige. Kopplingen mellan fackföreningar och statsstödda a-kassor, det s k Ghent-systemet, tenderar emellertid undermineras av den sedan 1980-talet stigande direktanslutningen till a-kassorna. Vidare diskuteras möjliga konsekvenser av den obligatoriska arbetslöshetsförsäkring som alliansen avser införa.
