Norway -Industrial workers consider strike -April 01, 2014

The trade unions announced that 9,000 industrial workers, including some at key oil services companies, could go on strike on April 2 if government mediation over wages and pensions fails. Initial mediation has broken down and the parties have started forced mediation in the first set of major wage talks that will later be followed by oil workers and public sector employees. Trade unions and employers hold wage negotiations every second year and oil workers went on a two week strike in 2012, shutting part of the country's vital offshore sector until the government broke up the dispute.
