Union plans strike action against care company

Denmark Denmark

(August 2016) The FOA public services union is planning strike action against the DK Pleje care company unless it agrees to negotiate a collective agreement. The company has so far refused to negotiate with FOA and is paying its workers less than other companies in the sector that apply the relevant collective agreement. This had lead to other companies being undercut and losing contracts with local authorities. One recent case involved BakkeBo Hjemmepleje which does negotiate with FOA but which lost out to DK-Care and as a result went bankrupt. Read more at FOA (DK) on the planned strike and the problem of social dumping in the care sector.
