A strike that began with 36 Union of Education of Norway (UEN) teachers at one school in Bergen is about to explode in size as 5,500 additional teachers from 130 secondary schools will join the labour action. One of the controversial proposals orders teachers to spend 7.5 hours of working time at school each day, which the trade union argues does not reflect the realities and demands of the profession. In June, 73% of the teachers voted against a proposed collective agreement, which they say threatens their professional autonomy and hinders their ability to deliver a quality education.
