18th April 2018: Labour Conflict Delayed a Further 2 Weeks

Denmark’s official conciliatory body (Forligsinstitutionen) has decided to delay the previously announced industrial action for a further 2 weeks, so labour stoppages cannot take place earlier than the 5th day following the end of the 2 weeks.

This means that a strike could begin on 6th May, 2018 and a lockout on 12th May, 2018.

However, the conciliatory body may within the 2 weeks declare that negotiations have broken down, in which case a strike/lockout could commence on the 5th day following the declaration. 

We’ll keep you informed if a labour conflict does in fact take place.
