If Trade and Office (HK) and Virke do not agree on a revised collective agreement for retail employees by Saturday, employees in 201 companies will go on strike.

On Thursday and Friday, HK and Virke will recur to the advocate after negotiations were suspended on 28 August.

HK has prepared the list of who will stop working on Saturday, if the parties do not reach an agreement, reports the Free Trade Movement.

The list includes 201 companies from all over the country, including several Meny and Coop supermarkets, as well as construction material shops.

“We have tried to eliminate companies that have done well during the pandemic and have not laid off employees in recent months. It’s to avoid a double burden,” HK manager Christopher Beckham told the website.

At the top of HK’s list of demands when they meet with the defender on Thursday is the full payment in case of illness, which means, among other things, that the company pays wages as usual when employees are on sick leave and even provides a refund from Nav.
