Norway -Mediation and possible strike averted -March 26, 2015

Agreement reached in the collective bargaining for workers in manufacturing industries with an average pay increase of 2.7 percent for the 175,000 workers.

Trade union confederation LO and the Confederation of Norwegian Enterprise NHO have reached an agreement in their collective bargaining for workers in manufacturing industries. The deal is estimated by both sides to result in an average pay increase of 2.7 percent for the 175,000 workers involved, below the central bank's forecast for wages to rise nationally by 3% in 2015. Both sides have emphasised the need for moderate wage growth in 2015 as the economy faces a slowdown with lower activity in the oil sector.
