Basic Collective Agreement Norway

1. As part of the first part of the agreement, an accommodation agreement (additional local arrangement) is concluded within the Agency with respect to participation between the parties. If the parties agree, means of cooperation other than those described in this agreement may be adopted. Adaptation agreements must fall within the scope of the basic agreement and the framework defined in section 2, paragraph 3, and section 13. Each of the parties may challenge a dispute over the interpretation of this agreement in the labour tribunal. (1) Union representatives in the workplace and workers in official positions within the union are not deprived of paid leave without compelling cause to attend meetings of the department`s office, the trade union committee and the national trade union committee, national assemblies and the Union Representatives Committee. The same applies to executive meetings and meetings within the permanent body set up by the executive and/or by councils when they cannot take place outside of working time. In agreement with the employer, unions may hold members` meetings during working hours on matters of a general nature, for which the parties agree on the importance of promptly informing all workers. 3. Information must be provided at meetings and/or in writing/electronic.

Elected union representatives are informed at all times of the documents relevant to the relevant cases. Files are usually forwarded through a request for discussion or negotiation. Other guidelines on how information is provided and when it is provided must be defined in the accommodation agreement for each agency/operating unit when one of the parties requires it. Basic agreements at the highest level are negotiated between trade union confederations and national employers` organisations. As has already been said, there are separate agreements between the different national employers` organisations and the various trade union organisations. For example, LO has separate basic agreements with NHO, the main private sector employers` organization, Virke (formerly HSH), the main private service sector employers` organization, and 100,000,000 people, the employers` organization, which mainly represents privatized entities. The same is true for some variants for other trade union organisations that have their own basic agreements with employers` organisations. However, this is not the case in the public sector, where basic agreements are negotiated jointly with all trade union organisations. The basic agreement for the central government is signed by the trade union confederations Unio and Akademikerne, as well as LO Stat and YS Stat, the unions representing these workers in the LO and YS confederations. Similar provisions apply to the basic agreement with KS, with local employers` organisation A being under-represented when it represents less than 40% of the workforce in the employment category concerned.
