The Danish labour market in Denmark
Agreements - the Danish model

In Denmark, many wage and working conditions are agreed between the employee and employer organisations. This takes place in collective agreements which are signed by the trade unions and employers' associations. Collective agreements contain regulations regarding your salary, working hours, training, pension and rules governing salary during illness and terms of notice. Denmark does not have a tradition of legislating in this area. This is why we talk about the "Danish labour market model".
No-strike agreement in the settlement period

Once a settlment has been reached, a no-strike period comes into force. Among other things, this means that employees are not allowed to strike or lock-out during the period of the settlement. If conflicts arise, they must be resolved by the labour market parties themselves without the state becoming involved in negotiations or finding a solution.
