Demonstration for public sector employees in Aarhus

While the conciliation board attempts to negotiate a collective agreement for public sector employees, the trade unions have announced a demonstration in Aarhus.

“Grab your co-worker or your family and show up early – we’re going to be a big crowd.”

The trade unions are encouraging all public sector employees to participate in a demonstration this Thursday in Aarhus. 

Speakers will include the chairperson of the Danish Union of Teachers, Anders Bondo Christiansen; the chairperson of the Danish Nurses’ Organization, Grethe Christensen; Nanna Højlund, deputy chairperson of the Danish Confederation of Trade Unions (LO) and Flemming Vinter, chair of the army’s enlisted private and corporal association (HKKF).

The MC will be Sebastian Dorset, standup comedian, public speaker and writer, and Shaka Loveless will perform – to help keep the demonstrators warm while they wait.

When: Thursday 22 March 17.00-19.00 (5pm - 7pm)
