The State Conciliator of Norway (Riksmekleren) has asked the parties in the bus conflict to a meeting on Wednesday at noon, Yrkestrafikkforbundet informed news bureau NTB.

The purpose of the meeting is for the parties to report on the status of the situation and see if there is a basis for resuming dialogue.

Yrkestrafikkforbundet has said it was willing to participate at the meeting, negotiation leader for Yrkestrafikkforbundet Linda Jæger noted.

Hoping for concessions

“YTF is waiting for what may come out of the meeting but hopes that the employer is willing to meet us when it comes to our requirements,” Jæger said.

On Monday morning, there was no contact between the employee side and the employer side.

More than 8,000 bus drivers have gone on strike around the country.

This weekend, the strike escalated, and another 4,500 bus drivers joined the 3,800 drivers who had already put their jobs on hold.
