Unio kommune announced that it would take out another 13,370 members on strike across the country from Wednesday next week.

As of Wednesday next week, Unio kommune plans to take about 13,370 more workers on strike in kindergartens, schools, health institutions, libraries, and other municipal entities across the country.

If the escalation materializes, more than 20,760 members will be on strike.

The municipalities that have already been affected by the strike are Alta, Bærum, Bergen, Bodø, Haugesund, Kristiansand, Trondheim, Stavanger, Levanger, Ringsaker, Sunnfjord, Tønsberg, and Ålesund.

In addition, Fredrikstad, Porsgrunn, and Drammen will be affected in the event of an escalation.

“Complex and demanding”

“The Norwegian Association of Local and Regional Authorities (KS) must take this societal problem seriously and provide a decent offer that can help make the professions more attractive,” deputy head Silje Naustvik of the Norwegian Nurses’ Association noted.

“Our members are giving an irreplaceable contribution to society. These are complex and demanding tasks that require a high level of competence and lengthy education,” Naustvik added.
