The Danish Confederation of Trade Unions, is the largest national trade union confederation in Denmark and is recognised as the most representative workers’ organisation in both the private and the public sector.
LO’s main objective is to handle employee interests vis-a-vis employers and authorities. Through its cooperation with associations, cartels and other trade union organisations, LO seeks to influence the government and the political parties when it comes to drafting and implementing legislation, especially in relation to labour market policies.
In its role of coordinator in relation to central collective bargaining, LO strives to secure common, overall demands. The Danish trade union movement has already achieved a wide range of its objectives.
But in a modern society, new objectives and challenges constantly arise. Today, one of the the trade union movement’s goals is to help employees achieve a better harmony between working life and family life.
