Norway public sector strike widens

Text size Aa Aa

Around 50,000 people have now joined a public sector strike in Norway.

That’s double the number of workers who began a walk out last week over pay.

Operators of boats that guide tankers to the country’s oil refineries have joined the action – which is rare in Norway – and threatens to disrupt oil and gas supplies.

Norwegian media reports that some filling stations could soon run out of fuel.
