Industrial Relations: Denmark sees drop in walkouts

At the risk of causing riots around the world by mentioning Denmark, statistics from Dansk Arbejdsgiverforening (DA) show that in the last three months of last year, Denmark experienced only 74 walkouts which on average, lasted less than a day.

The chairman of 3F's Industrial Group, Børge Frederiksen, believes that changes made to industrial agreements in 2004, are responsible for the low figures.

He told media, "The possibility of nipping conflicts in the bud through the new conflict solving meetings has certainly proven effective."
