OSLO (Reuters) – It is up to the union and oil companies to resolve the ongoing strike action in the Norwegian oil sector, the Nordic Labor Ministry told Reuters on Thursday.
"Strike is a legitimate measure. It is the responsibility of the partners to find a solution to this situation. The Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs is following the strike in the usual way," the ministry said in a statement sent via email.
In 2012, the Norwegian government relied on emergency powers to end a conflict in the oil industry after 16 days when employers threatened a lockout of workers that would have ceased all Norwegian oil and gas production.
