Electrician, welcome to Denmark! Remember to check up on your collective agreement.
Electricians working at Danish working places have a number of rights that are laid down in collective agreements. If you work for a company, which is covered by a collective agreement, you have the same rights as your Danish colleagues. If the company does not have a collective agreement the officers from the Danish Union of Electricians will negotiate a collective agreement as soon as possible.
