Risk of Strike at Norwegian Air Shuttle AS

Leader of the Norwegian Cabin Association (NK), Marit Lindén says that they have been negotiating with Norwegian’s management since June without getting approval for some of their requirements.

– We demand acceptable working conditions, and working up to 60 hours a week and 22 hours per day is a great burden. We also require wage increases in line with the pilots and other professions have already achieved, says Lindén to NTB.
