Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


The danish labour market is influenced by many factors, but the question is whether they cause consistent transformations. This thesis approach the issue through a retroductive case study of why a local agreement about a workers' investment company was adopted at Danish Crown Rønne in 2014. The agreement implies that the workers invest money in Danish Crown in exchange for the slaughterhouse not to close and that they get partial influence on the investments. It is, inter alia, adopted because of the actors’ strategic choices based on values and external and systemic causes. The data is based on semi structured, elite interviews with central actors; the company Danish Crown and the unions HK and NNF, supplemented with written answers from the Ministry of Business and Growth Denmark. On the basis of theory of relational institutionalism and critical realist theory of science it is examined what leads up to the agreement and which consequences it may have. Especially causes like international competition, geographics, the position of organizations, involvement of the state and the public awareness are included in the analytical spectrum.
