Public sector salaries are governed by collective agreements, with city members generally governed by the AC collective agreement (negotiated by academics – Danish professional association). Salary is a net salary to which about 17.1 to 18.3% of the pension is added. The labour court can therefore rule on both the application of solidarity actions and on the various elements of the collective agreement requirement, such as the limitations of wages, leave and pensions.

Unions can take different types of collective action to reach an agreement with an employer. You can also see it as a foreign employer with people who have been deployed to Denmark. You can also be employed under the collective agreement for academics working in the regions or on an individual contract, depending on where you work.
