Norway firms agree 3.2 pct wage increase with unions, avert strike

OSLO, April 1 (Reuters) - Norway's two largest private-sector labour unions have agreed a 3.2 percent wage increase with companies, averting a strike, the unions and employers said on Monday.

Close to 25,000 workers would have gone on strike unless a deal was found by April 1, the Norwegian Confederation of Trade Unions (LO) and the Confederation of Vocational Unions (YS) said on March 27.

Power producer Statkraft was among those that would have been hit in the first wave of strikes, as were Telenor Aker Solutions, Orkla and Carlsberg. (Reporting by Oslo newsroom)
