The union LO Aarhus partnered up with Jens Galschiøt to commission a dockworker monument for the harbor in Aarhus. The sculpture depicts a typical work environment at Aarhus Harbor, and consists of 7 people cast in copperbronze and stainless steel.  The Salling Foundation has donated 405.000 euros for the sculpture. The sculpture should be launched in late August 2017, while Aarhus is the European Culture City.
