Norway -May marked by industrial action -May 26, 2012

With negotiations going on in several sectors the country is marked by industrial disputes, but also by the conclusion of a long list of wage agreements. Fellesforbundet concluded this month a long list of agreements in several sectors (pulp and paper, glass, agriculture and horticulture, hotel and restaurant sector, the graphical trades, forestry, fish farming and rental services) whilst the public sector entered into a period of strikes affecting a wide range of workplaces and townships all over the country. Meanwhile also the oil workers have threatened with a strike after talks, centred on changes in the workers' pension system, between the unions and the Oil Industry Association failed.
