State sector unions set out main demands

Norway Norway
Trade unions representing around 100,000 employees in the state sector have set out their main demands for this year’s collective bargaining round. Equal pay is a key element with a call for 0.25% of the wage bill to be set aside to deal with the 8% gender pay gap. YS Stat is arguing for workers to be put on a higher pay grade when they return from parental leave to ensure that time away from work doesn’t impact on their progression up the pay scale. Unions are also concerned to keep up with pay in the private sector, where average pay is around NOK 11200 (€1420) higher than in the public sector.
