Norway -Solid wage increase for engineers -January 2, 2012

NITO, the Norwegian Society of Engineers and Technologists, has for 2011 secured a major wage increase for those of its approximately 66,000 members who figured in the list of members in both 2011 and 2010. Its members only negotiate locally. In 2011, the average wage increase was 5.1% in the private sector, while wages for NITO members rose by 6.1%. In comparison, the Norwegian inflation forecast for 2011 is 1.5%. This solid increase of real wages is partly a consequence of the country’s shortage of engineers.
