Pay deal reflects state solution.



The strike in the municipal sector is over, meaning things return to normal from tomorrow.

Today’s agreement by unions and employers means workers get a general pay rise of 3.4 percent, and mirrors what state employees were given almost two weeks ago.

Amongst other sums included in the figure is an extra 1.15 percent for workers in jobs requiring further education, such as teachers. Everyone will also receive a wage increase of 7,100 kroner.

“I am proud of the impressive efforts our representatives and members have shown. I’m also glad for all the messages of support we’ve received from the public for our demands,” says Gunn Olander, leader of the municipal sector’s Confederation of Vocation Unions (YS Kommune).
