You get what you are entitled to: Long-awaited committee gives a long nose to nurses’ salary demands

Sthe nurses in the Danish healthcare system went on strike, took to the streets and called for their pay. It was too low, and it had been that way for decades, the message read. It all ended in a salary structure committee that had to assess that very question.

The answer is that the nurses receive roughly the salary they are entitled to.

This is shown in a draft of the commission’s report, which Politiken has in its possession.

On the other hand, it also appears that, among others, a number of educational professional groups and cleaning assistants today receive a salary that is below what they should be, if you look at the three parameters management responsibility, work experience and level of education.

Politiken has tried to get a comment from Grete Christensen, chairman of the Danish Nursing Council, but it has not been successful. The salary structure committee’s chairman, professor of economics at Aarhus University Torben M. Andersen, states that he has no comments today.

We have also tried to get a comment from Morten Skov Christiansen, acting chairman of the main organization of the trade union movement. He has “no comment on comments on a leaked report”, as his personal assistant writes in a text message.
