The Union of Commercial and Office Employees (Handel og Kontor) has called off threatened industrial action at three of Norway’s major airports, almost 15 hours past the negotiations deadline. The new pay deal secures employees a maximum of 1.50 kroner per hour, with an increase in minimum wage increase of 12 percent by Q2 2011. “We have managed to secure two important principles: an adjustment clause for both wages and qualified staff,” deputy union leader Peggy Hessen Følsvik tells trade paper HK-Nytt.
