English > Collective agreements

FLT has collective agreements with several employers’ associations. These collective agreements entitle our members to better terms and conditions than those required by The Working Environment Act (‘Arbeidsmiljøloven’). A membership subscription to FLT does not automatically grant a collective agreement for our members. The collective agreement becomes effective when a member’s employer or employers’ organization officially accepts the agreement. All members, whether or not they have a collective agreement, are entitled to ask for advice regarding labor laws.

The agreements regulate wage and working conditions

  • The right to elect a shop steward
  • The right to hold local salary negotiations

  • Contractual pension (AFP)
  • Paid compassionate leave
  • Economic support for continuing education
  • Five weeks of annual paid holiday
