Security personnel strike worsens / News / The Foreigner

Security personnel strike worsens. There’s still no agreement in site to solve the deadlocked strike between employers and NAF (the Union of General Workers/Norsk Arbeidsmandsforbund), meaning further chaos for passengers. NAF has now warned it’s to step up industrial action from tomorrow at 06:00, forcing even more airports to suspend departures. Scheduled traffic from Haugesund, Førde, Molde, Stokmarknes and Hammerfest has already been hit, and Avinor now says they expect almost all flights from Kristiansand, Ørsta/Volda, Kristiansund, Harstad/Narvik, and Lakselv airports will be cancelled.

NAF has now warned it’s to step up industrial action from tomorrow at 06:00, forcing even more airports to suspend departures.

Scheduled traffic from Haugesund, Førde, Molde, Stokmarknes and Hammerfest has already been hit, and Avinor now says they expect almost all flights from Kristiansand, Ørsta/Volda, Kristiansund, Harstad/Narvik, and Lakselv airports will be cancelled.

Departures from Sola and Oslo Gardermoen will also be affected and passengers should expect long queues and are advised to arrive early because of reduced capacity.

The strike could also mean many cash machines will run out of money as NAF has called out staff in Loomis and G4S, amongst other companies.
