Industrial action in the municipal sector has escalated today, after unions brought a further 400 of their members out on strike.

In a new development, action by the Musician’s Union (MFO) has affected performances at the National Opera and Ballet in Oslo.

A total of seven singers have been told to tone things down, and MFO has warned 11 dancers will be brought out on strike from tomorrow.

And the county’s concert halls could fall silent if no pay agreement is reached.

“Orchestral musicians belong to the same pay sector. It’s too early to say yet, but we’ll have to see how things go,” Niklas Kippenbroeck, MFO’s information officer tells The Foreigner.
