The Danish Model

In Denmark, there is a long tradition for regulating the labour market through the application of collective agreements rather than by legislation. The Danish Model of collective bargaining has been characterised as a voluntary system, because the Danish Parliament has passed little formal legislation regulating the labour market.

Collective bargaining is applied to:  

  • Wages
  • Hours of work
  • Dismissals
  • Pay during illness
  • Paid maternity/paternity leave
  • The right to further training
  • Pension contribution etc
  • Implementation of EU Directives
     

Grakom meets with the other parties to negotiate agreements on the graphics industry. The three agreements are the graphics agreement, screen printing agreement and the salaried employees’ agreement.
