The commission must resolve the protracted dispute on teachers ' working hours

Monday comes with recommendations for how municipalities and teachers can agree on arbejdstidsaftale.

It was a key issue for the teachers to get the country a new arbejdstidsaftale at negotiations on new agreements in the spring of 2018.

But it failed to reach an agreement with the municipalities on how teachers must use their work hours at the schools.

the Parties instead agreed to defer the issue and establish a commission to make recommendations by the end of 2019.

on Monday afternoon comes as the conclusions of the commission with former forvaltningschef Per B. Christensen in the lead.

There is a lot at stake for both the teachers and the municipalities, assess the arbejdsmarkedsforsker Laust Høgedahl, Aalborg University.

- It reflects a form of power struggle between teachers and their employers.

- the Teachers would like to have their working time regulated by a central collective agreement.

- Employers would however like to let arbejdstidsspørgsmålet be a part of the ledelsesretten, so it is the employer at the workplace, which can dispose of, how the teachers work, says Laust Høgedahl.

As it is now, is the teachers ' working time is regulated by a mistake back in 2013.

It came to pass, when the government intervened in the then conflict between the teachers and the municipalities.

the Page was made two attempts - in 2015 and in 2018 - to negotiate an agreement between the parties. But without any luck.

the Question is, whether it can succeed this time, on the basis of the commission's recommendations.

- I think both parties have an interest in getting the country a deal, says Laust Høgedahl.

- the Teachers are the only group in the Danish labour market, which have their working time regulated by law.

- the Parties know that it is time to find a solution to the problem, he says.

When the commission delivers its recommendations at a news conference at the Gungehusskolen in Hvidovre on Monday afternoon, it is the starting point for new negotiations between the teachers and the municipalities.

the Hope is that the parties can agree in the course of the spring of 2020.

If this is not done, the issue of a new arbejdstidsaftale be sent on to the collective bargaining in the public domain in 2021.
