Denmark: Burger King workers win their first collective agreement

The IUF-affiliated 3F has won a first collective agreement covering 33 Burger King restaurants owned by four different operators.

The collective agreement covers some 1.400 employees and provides for guaranteed working hours, bonus payment for evening and weekend hours, duty planning rules, paid holidays, paid sick leave, paid maternity leave, the right to have weekends off and protection for trade union rights.

“In a market where a company’s success is often built on the backs of hard-working workers, it is important for us to have a CBA which ensure fair terms, fair competition and stops the race to the bottom in a fast-growing industry”, said 3F’s Peter Lykke Nielsen.

Many other fast food companies in Denmark, including McDonald’s, are covered by CBAs, ensuring that young people who often have their first jobs in the industry can benefit from fair employment terms.
