The collective bargaining contract between UNI’s Danish affiliate 3F and Hilfr is unprecedented insofar as it treats self-employed contractors as workers. The 12 month pilot agreement came into effect on 1 August 2018.
There are around 450 workers on Hilfr.dk, a website platform providing cleaning services for around 1,700 customers across Denmark.
Key points of the collective agreement:
- A minimum payment of 141, 21 DKK (19 €) pr. hour.
- A contribution to the pension savings
- Holiday pay contribution
- Sick pay
- Introduction of a ‘welfare supplement’ (velfærdstillæg), an additional amount of 20 kroner per hour to be paid on top of salary.
