Norway - Strike could paralyse public services - May 31, 2016

The police, the national tax administration, customs, the Norwegian Labour and Welfare Organization (NAV) and the nation’s universities and colleges are among the organizations that could be paralysed if a threatened public strike becomes reality. A public sector strike was viewed as likely after three of four labour unions broke off negotiations with the state at the beginning of May 2016. The union Akademikerne Stat was the only one of the four union confederations to reach a deal with the state this year. LO Stat, Unio Stat and YS Stat all opted to break off negotiation talks. The unions and the state will meet with a state mediator. His goal is to help the two sides reach agreement on 25 May.
