Denmark -Union challenges government on impact of pay cuts -January 25, 2012

The FOA public services union has highlighted the findings of a recent opinion poll in which 84% of people said that the level of employment is important in delivering public services. The union says this challenges the claims of both the present and previous governments that the level and quality of public services can be maintained despite the fact there are 25,000 fewer public sector workers in post than a year ago. FOA says that this is also putting pressure on the smaller number of workers who continue to provide key services such as child and eldercare and the risk that the situation will deteriorate as a large proportion of public sector workers comes up for retirement.
