Hours before state and local government workers were due to initiate strike actions, negotiators reached two new collective agreements, with a third being expected soon. As negotiations progressed slowly, local, Oslo municipal and state level public sector workers announced industrial action. After over-night negotiations, however, the local level workers reached an agreement for a 3.3% wage increase and no changes in the organisations’ pay systems. Within hours, the state level agreement was reached as well and Oslo municipal workers are expected to settle soon.
