Norway -Strikes loom in hotels, harbour and farms -May 08, 2014

Strikes over pay and working conditions are looming in the hotel and restaurant branch, the harbours and farming.

Strikes over pay and working conditions are looming in the hotel and restaurant branch, the harbours and farming. Harbour workers are taking action against attempts by harbour managers and shipping companies to use seafarers instead of dockers to load and unload vessels. Hotel workers will take action on 17 May, a national holiday. The action is expected to close down or affect 69 hotels and involve 2,621 workers. The hotel strike follows a ballot in which union members rejected an agreement on pay that was reached between the Fellesforbundet union and employers’ organisation NHO Reiseliv.
