Norway -Government halts electricity strike as it widens -May 14, 2013

The Electrician and IT Workers’ Union called a strike on 29 April of 80 members who seek to sign a collective agreement with IT infrastructure company Atea. On May 7, it expanded the action to 3,000 members at regional power companies that are customers of Atea. The LO-affiliated trade union has now brought 466 of the members out on a solidarity strike. The walkout not only affects customers of western Norway companies Lyse and Haugaland Kraft, but could lead to national blackouts. At the urging of the Labour Ministry, the parties have returned to work.
