Norway -Government supports action to protect decent work -August 25, 2011

Following recent scandals over social dumping by private contractors, the Fagforbundet municipal union reports that the government is determined to maintain and improve a regulatory framework to protect contractors’ employees, based on the International Labour Organisation (ILO) Convention 94, that was introduced into Norwegian law in 2008. The ESA, the body that monitors legislation in the European Economic Area, argues that Convention 94 conflicts with EEA/EU rules and so the government is looking at new legislation in response to these criticisms (See also this Collective Bargaining Newsletter Year 4 June 2011).
