LO aims to address the issue of social dumping, both in Denmark and in the EU.
LO proposes that the Danish government launches major initiatives to stop social dumping.
- We cannot accept the exploitation and underpayment of our European colleagues. And we cannot accept the relocation of workplaces from Denmark to other countries as companies try to compete on unfair terms and conditions in order to save production costs, says Harald Børsting.
In the collective bargaining round for the LO-area which has recently been successfully concluded, the fight against social dumping has been a central issue.
It has been crucial for the worker-side to make the employers commit to taking a responsibility for combating social dumping, including wage dumping at the expense of Danish workers.
After the successful renewal of the collective agreements, LO-President, Harald Børsting commented on the result saying,
- I am extremely pleased to be able to say that we have also addressed the issue of social dumping in the collective agreements with a view to combating wage dumping at the expense of Danish workers.
