New collective agreement for state civil servants


The headlines? 5.9% salary increase from April this year and another 1.7% increase from 2025, three weeks extra of parental leave (barsel), and the possibility to save up 15 days of vacation for later use. This affects nearly 200,000 state civil servants in Denmark (police officers, military officers, gymnasium teachers, civil servants in ministries and national agencies, etc.)

  • The collective agreements are negotiated between trade unions and employer associations. Be aware that associations like Krifa, Det Faglige Hus, ASE, FRIE, and Business Denmark are not recognized as trade unions and cannot participate in the negotiations for the collective agreements.
