Digitalisation features in framework agreement in municipalities

Norway

Fagforbundet and other trade unions in local government have negotiated a new framework agreement which updates the rules and processes regulating the relations between local government unions and employers. The agreement covers continuing discussions about the need to develop the rights of employee representatives and the framework conditions in which they operate, a review of the main agreement to identify provisions that may be out of date or no longer relevant, consideration of how the provisions are applied in practice and to assess the need for amendments. There is also a specific provision this time round for multi-party exchanges on the impact of digitalisation and artificial intelligence on local government and the potential restructuring that might result.
