Denmark -Agreements signed for the public sector -February 18, 2013

Collective bargaining in the public sector covers approximately 800,000 employees in the state, regions and municipalities. Of these, about 410,000 are members of the LO affiliated unions. After the signature of a framework agreement the negotiations started for the different levels. Despite the difficult economic situation an agreement could be reached with the Ministry of Finance for the next two years' salary and working conditions of all national public sector workers. Negotiations at the level of the municipalities were concluded a week later with a consensus on the broad framework for the more than 500,000 municipal employees' salaries in the next two years. The deal includes a general wage increase of 1.97% over two years, complimented with an additional 0.25% increase for employees within certain areas.
