Private care company Kære Pleje, employing around 100 employees and servicing over 500 elderly in Kolding has gone bankrupt. The company has already found itself in conflict with trade union FOA in 2013, when it unilaterally cancelled the collective agreement in order to win the public procurement procedure set out by the municipality. FOA reports situations such as the bankruptcy of Kære Pleje are starting to become common place as more and more services are delivered by private companies and the competition in the sector is increased.
