Sample Sentences & Example Usage
Our people don't want to be registered with Danish unions because the Danish collective agreement -- which has been such a success on world-leading Danish airlines like Cimber Air, Sterling, Maersk, all of whom bestride the aviation globe as international colossi -- would require us to cut their pay, our pay is higher than the Danish collective agreement, but we would have to then pay for things like their underwear -- they have an underwear allowance because that's what's in the Danish collective agreement -- and, frankly, our pilots and cabin crew would rather buy their own knickers as long as we pay them more money.
