The four main associations LO, YS, Unio and Akademikerne spent six hours overtime to find a solution in mediation with the state.

– I am glad that we have reached agreement with all four main associations in the wage settlement in the state. We have thus avoided a strike, says Minister of Local Government and Modernization Nikolai Astrup (H).

The result is within the front subject framework of 1.7 percent, and leader Pål N. Arnesen in YS Stat says he is satisfied with it.

– The state initially rejected all our financial demands, so this shows that this mediation has been useful, says Arnesen.

For those organized in LO Stat, a general supplement is given to everyone of between NOK 1,321 and 5,753. The wage supplement will be given with effect from 1 October.

– We come out with a result where we get a general addition to everyone, but where the distribution profile is disappointing. We just have to state that. I am disappointed that the state does not take more responsibility for its lowest paid and for equal pay, says leader Egil André Aas LO Stat.
