Norway -Locked out dockers garnish political support -November 07, 2015

City councils in several towns have formed alliances to support the fight of dockworkers who have been locked out since May 2014, as reported in several newsletters. The Norwegian Employers’ Association (NHO) has launched several attempts to replace the unionised dockworkers by unorganised foreign workers, leading to a large-scale conflict in ports across the country. Several unions have raised funds to support the dockers’ campaign financially and three political parties have started to form alliances to guarantee the implementation of the ILO convention 137 on dockers.
