Prime Minister Erna Solberg (H) made it clear that Wizz Air cannot forbid its employees to unionize. She supports the boycott of the company.
“I will not fly with a company that refuses workers the right to organize,” Solberg said in the Norwegian parliament (Storting) on Wednesday.
“In the same way that I have never flown with Ryanair. Because ten years ago, I said that it was unacceptable for me to travel with airlines that do not have proper and tidy working conditions for their employees,” she continued.
Solberg made it clear that according to Norwegian law, Wizz Air cannot refuse employees the right to organize.
Last week, Wizz Air announced that they are starting up domestic routes from Oslo to Bergen, Trondheim, and Tromsø after flying abroad from Norway for almost 15 years.
The Hungarian company has made it clear that they will not enter into collective agreements with trade unions.
That has led to opposition among the trade unions in Norway.
Unions Industri Energi and Nito will not let their employees use the company for business trips.
