Norway - Union launches special website against post liberalisation - July 2, 2010

The Postkom union has stepped up its fight against the proposed mail directive and wants to mobilise popular resistance. “We are launching the campaign website www.postdirektivet.no to inform about the directive and bring up our points,” said Odd Christian Øverland, union chairman. Postkom has long worked against the EU's third directive mail to be included in Norwegian law as they believe that will be against consumers’ interests. In particular, the mail directive will affect communities outside the Oslo area in the form of poorer and more expensive postal services, according to the union.
