Sector: 

Our affiliate HK Privat Denmark was able to increase their membership and defend their sectoral bargaining agreement from employers' attacks and negotiate wage increases at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic in the very fragmented and often individualized sectorof dental assistants. They lead a successful campaign platforming key messages, escalating job action, linking worker and client safety, and applying pressure at the right time.
