Observation 2001 – Norway

The Committee requests information on any developments in respect of the proposals made by the national committee which was appointed to review the system of collective bargaining and the settlement of industrial disputes. As to the public hearing of the committee’s report and the subsequent bill from the Government put forward to the Storting, we refer to Norway’s report of 2002 on Con. No. 87. As stated there the Government did not follow the proposal that the state mediator should be granted powers to order a vote among workers’ and employers’ organisations. Furthermore, the regulations concerning linkage of ballots were amended, so that the mediator may only link ballots of the parties concerned give their concent. The adopted amendments in the Labour Disputes Act came into force on 1 January 2003.
