Norway - Energy sector dispute settled - September 13, 2009

Unions in the energy sector have managed to secure a change in the way local pay increases are allocated. Several unions have argued that the local additions should be flat rates rather than percentage increases that benefit the higher paid more. A settlement was reached with the aid of the mediation office and a general increase of 925 Krone (Euro 107) applies from 1 July. A committee has also been established to look at how the local wage negotiations will work in future.
