Strike by 216 employees in 16 power companies around the country will result in about a week if the mediation between EL and IT related and KS Company is not successful.

Parties meet for mediation next Wednesday. If it ended without result the strike will start from Friday morning.

Time off scheme for emergency guards in the power sector is expected to become one of the most difficult issues.

– We are willing to strike to keep the rest days we have today and that our comrades in private energy companies has reached tariff.

It is totally unreasonable that the employer will deprive us needed rest, says chief negotiator Bjørn Fornes in trade union EL and IT.

Power companies in Hedmark, Oppland, Buskerud, Vestfold, Telemark, Møre og Romsdal and Trøndelag will initially be hit by the strike.
