    Goals / remit

The Confederation of Danish Employers (DA), founded in 1896, is a non-profit organisation funded by subscriptions from member organisations. 13 employers’ organisations with an overall membership of around 24,000 private companies in the manufacturing, retail, transport, service and construction businesses are members of DA.
DA represents the interests of its member organisations in the Danish and European political systems. The main objective is to influence regional, national and European policy-makers in order to increase the competitiveness of Danish companies and ease their access to skilled labour. Furthermore DA ensures the effective coordination of the mutual interests of employers when collective agreements are negotiated in Denmark. DA supports and promotes the use of collective bargaining and considers it vital to ensure that labour markets are, as far as possible, regulated through flexible collective agreements.

DA has been represented in Brussels since 1973.

The principal tasks of DA’s office in Brussels and DA’s European activities can be divided into five categories:

- Monitoring the decision-making process in the EU-institutions in relation to labour market issues
- Gathering of intelligence and functioning as a centre of information between the Danish head office and European stakeholders
- Taking part in the European Social Dialogue and negotiating European agreements
- Actively participating in business networks, advisory committees and the decision-making process of BusinessEurope
- Promoting the interests of Danish employers and ensuring compatibility between EU legislation and the Danish labour market model
