Private sector deal agreed for most workers

Denmark Denmark
The main private sector collective agreement has been finalised and will provide minimum pay increases of 1.2% in 2010 and 1.8% in 2011. Local bargaining will mean further increases on top of these minima. The agreement runs until 31 March 2012 and is important in relation to the two public sector agreements for state and municipal workers where bargaining will begin towards the end of the year to renew the agreements by 1 April 2011. The private sector deal also includes improved parental leave, better health surveillance for night workers and pension contributions starting after two months at work rather than nine months. The agreement covers 240,000 workers in the private sector although issues affecting transport workers still need to be resolved. The FOA public service union has members in transport and care that are covered by the agreement and it has endorsed the deal.
