The scope of this semester assignment will assess the phenomenon and the causes of declining membership in LO confederation unions, the impact this could have on wage levels in Denmark and the effect on power-dependence relations between two trade unions and their respective employer unions. Having previously assessed recruitment strategies and motivations for recruitment of potential trade union members, I now wish to assess the phenomenon of the declining rate of memberships on a grander scale. Having previously researched both trade unions and aspects of the trade union landscape in Denmark, the assessment of this phenomena is supported by previously garnered knowledge which will hopefully facilitate an accurate and interesting assessment of the current situations in the Danish trade union landscape.
