Unio, Academics, leaders and Schools’ Association will take out 276 members on strike if  the mediation  with Virke is not successful. A strike will affect museums, schools, colleges and hospitals from Monday.

The parties will meet at the State mediator on Thursday at 10 am, and the deadline is midnight on Saturday. The arbitration includes associations organized in health, education and culture – the so-called HUK sectors.

– The break in negotiation happened due to a disagreement between the parties as to whether all employers are free to choose between the current contractual public service pension with associated AFP in public service, and a new alternative pension with a private pension company, said Uniontown.

They initially reported a walkout by members of the Education Association (103), Norwegian Nurses Organisation (60), NAR (87), Norwegian Physiotherapist Association (10), Norwegian Occupational Therapist Association (9) and Norwegian Radiographer Association (7).
