World’s first collective agreement between platform company and trade union in Denmark

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.
