If the parties do not reach agreement, will cleaning workers across the country go on strike from Tuesday morning.

Tariff negotiations between the Norwegian Union of General Workers and NHO Service ended in a breach in the mediation. As a result of failed mediations, 517 workers will be on strike from Tuesday morning if mediation if the parties does not come to an agreement. The first strike applies to businesses in counties across the country. The parties had good discussions during the negotiations, but could not agree on the financial framework for salaries of cleaners, according to chief negotiator Erna Hagensen.
Around 5,000 cleaners are members of the Norwegian Union of General Workers, which is part of the LO.
