The escalation of the security guards’ strike will hit Oslo Central Station on Wednesday morning. Bane Nor hopes they will not have to close the station.

“We make an ongoing assessment of what is safest, and whether we can keep the station open,” Knut Øivind Ruud Johansen, director of stations in Bane Nor Eiendom, told newspaper VG.

He added that shutting the station down was also a possibility. 

“We must first see if there are incidents that we can not solve,” he noted.

2,000 security guards on strike

The Parat union has previously announced that an extension of the strike will also apply to helicopter traffic into the Norwegian Sea from Kristiansund and the processing plant to the Ormen Lange gas field.

The security guard strike began on September 16, and more than 2,000 security guards are now on strike. 

The strike has so far, among other things, led to the Oslo bus terminal closing at 8:00 PM, as well as difficulties for Trondheim municipality when it comes to keeping a coronavirus testing station open.
