    Figures published by Statistics Norway (Statistisk Sentralbyrå, SSB) in
    mid-2003 suggest that approximately 150,000 working days were lost as a
    result of labour disputes in 2002. The number of working days lost per 1,000
    employees was approximately 70. This means that the number of working days
    lost in industrial disputes in 2002 (NO0206105F [1]) was lower than in the
    other years over the past decade when bargaining over main wage settlements
    occurred (ie 1992, 1996, 1998 and 2000). The equivalent figure in 2000, the
    year of the last main bargaining round, was just under 500,000. At the same
    time, however, the 2002 figures confirm that Norway is among those
    industrialised countries with a medium to high level of industrial conflict
    (TN0303104U [2]).

    coalition agreement provides for major cutbacks in public spending, largely
    targeted on social security expenditure. The trade unions are fiercely

    activities. The group may be selling off its shipbuilding division and
    announced job losses in its power and transport infrastructure divisions at
    various works council meetings in April, May and June. There have been fierce

    Council has brought a court case.

    In a judgment issued in late May 2003, a Greek court ruled the dismissals of
    many workers at Athenian Paper Mills SA (Softex) to be illegal, as redundancy
    legislation had not been observed. It stated that the workers are thus
    entitled to retroactive compensation for lost pay from the date they were
    made redundant in 2002 up to the date of the court ruling.
