RANDERS, Denmark – Employees and Danish Crown's slaughterhouse facility in Rønne approved a rescue plan that will keep the facility open.

The Danish Food and Allied Workers' Union NNF and the Confederation of Danish Industry developed a joint rescue plan for the facility in Rønne on the Danish island of Bornholm. The groups reached a five-year agreement that will keep the slaughterhouse open and save 190 jobs. The agreement calls for an employee investment company to contribute to financing investments in the slaughterhouse. Danish Crown said 182 of 196 employees voted in favor of the plan.
“This is a special agreement at the Rønne slaughterhouse, which will not be copied to other slaughterhouses,” said Jesper Friis, CEO of DC Pork. “The employees have been positive and very constructive and I am really pleased that they have been willing to seek a solution to quite a unique problem in Bornholm.”

A Bornholm foundation will be established under which employees with contribute financing toward investments at the slaughterhouse.
