Denmark: Teachers' lock-out undermines Danish model of collective bargaining (08 April 2013)

Despite intense last-minute discussions and new offers from the EI affiliate, the Danish Teachers Union (DLF), the employers’ lock-out of nearly all primary and lower secondary teachers in the whole country has become effective from 1 April. The lock-out prevents approximately 875,000 pupils from receiving their normal education as teachers are not allowed into the schools.
