Risk of air traffic controller strike on Saturday morning – NRK Norway – Overview of news from different parts of the country
Mediation started on Thursday and is now taking place between the Air Traffic Control Association and NHO aviation at the Riksmekleren.
– Mediation is taking place now, and the deadline is midnight. We have a duty of confidentiality when we are in mediation, so that is the only thing I can say, says Robert Gjønnes to NRK on Friday morning.
He is a leader in the Norwegian Air Force Association.
Gjønnes is the leader of the actions for the air traffic controllers and attended the first meetings at 10 o’clock on Thursday morning, according to NTB.
– If the mediation does not succeed, two air traffic controllers at Vigra and three at Kjevik will go on strike from Saturday at 9 o’clock, then it will be seen what kind of consequences it will have in that case, says Gjønnes.
Resignations have been announced for five members who will therefore go on strike in the event of a conflict, while resignations have been announced for a total of 18.
The Ombudsman’s office informs NRK on Friday morning that the mediation is taking place between the parties and that, for the time being, there is not much more to say until the afternoon.
Nor will managing director Torbjørn Lothe of NHO Luftfart make a statement while they are in mediation.
– There is not much we can say now, but we always have a goal of finding a solution, he says.
It is the mediators Bjørn Lillebergen and Nils-Henrik Mørch von der Fehr who work together with the parties to try to find a mediation solution.
