Norway -Average industrial wage target for bus drivers -November 11, 2011

The Fagforbundet public sector trade union has set a target for bus drivers’ wages for next year’s negotiations. The aim will be to get bus drivers’ pay in line with the average wage in the manufacturing sector. Currently drivers are paid around NOK 25,000 (€3,200) yearly less than that target. The negotiations will also look at drivers’ working hours and in particular weekend work, with a view to addressing issues around work-life balance.
