Mediation LO–NHO

13.04.2021

Draft agreement

  • A general hourly increase of NOK 2.25 for everyone as of 1 April.
  • An additional low wage supplement for all workers covered by national agreements of less than 90 percent of the average industrial wage. (The average industrial wage is NOK 506,630 per year; 90 percent is NOK 455, 967.)
  • The low-wage supplement will be a special boon to women. Almost half of all workers entitled to the low-wage supplement are women, while women covered by this year’s wage settlement are around 20 percent. 

The draft agreement proposed by the mediator has been unanimously recommended by the bargaining committee. The LO General Council will adopt its position on the draft agreement on 6 May 2021.
