Unions could escalate Norway oil and gas strike

Text size Aa Aa

Norway’s trade unions say they will decide on Friday whether to scale up a strike by offshore oil and gas workers.

The 10 day old industrial action has cut the country’s oil production by about 13 percent. Gas output has fallen by around 4 percent.

If unions do call more workers out on strike, the Norwegian government does have powers to force employees back to work in cases of vital national interest.
