Studenteropgave: Speciale


As a result of modernization reforms, the use of contracting out has increased over the last decades. The technical areas of the public sector have been highly affected by this, and therefore this thesis investigates how repeated competitive bidding affects the working con-dition of Danish waste collectors. This thesis looks at competitive bidding as a recurring or-ganizational change in which the framework of especially the structural conditions are af-fected. This paper focuses on wage and terms of employment, physical working conditions, job security, job satisfaction, and health conditions. These topics were identified through literary review of studies documenting the effects of contracting out on employees. The the-sis is based on a survey conducted among unionized waste collectors in 3F (n=231). The thesis concludes that the number of rounds of competitive bidding does not affect the working conditions of the waste collectors. None of the statistical analysis of the five topics showed significant results, which in turn does not support the theoretical and literary expec-tations of compromised working conditions. A possible explanation for the absence of the expected compromised working conditions is the thesis’ methodical focus on the individual worker’s number of experienced rounds of competitive bidding, instead of on the individual municipal task's transition from public to private ownership during the first round of compet-itive bidding.
