– This is an important signal that we are sending now. Prime Minister Jonas Kar Store (Labor) says full permanent positions should be a regular part of Norway’s working life.
Labor Minister Hadia Tajik (Labor Party) has invited the NRK to a construction site in Voltslovka, Oslo. An integrated high school and cultural stadium will be built by workers with permanent employment.
– It should be easy to be serious and hard to be junk. This is important for the people who work here, but also for the economy as a whole and the restructuring we are now going through, says Store.
The government will now remove a phrase in the Working Environment Act that would allow people to work temporarily – and without further justification – for up to twelve months.
One of the first election promises to be fulfilled, Storey says, is about legal change happening at express speeds. The bill will soon be submitted to Sorting.
– It will happen before Christmas. This is a project that has already been discussed, so we can now go directly to the project, ”Labor Minister Hadia Tajik said in detail.
She is aiming Report From the government-appointed Faulkner group, which the majority agreed to cancel public access introduced by the Solberg government.
The report points out that this rule violates the principle that temporary work must meet the needs of temporary workers. The majority also say, “This arrangement does not seem to have worked as planned.”
Fear the consequences
The Solberg government believed that the general right to hire people temporarily for up to twelve months would reduce the limit on working life. Be sure to include more people who have been out of work for a long time.
The Støre government is now removing this access. Conservative Labor policy spokesman Henrik Asheim says it’s a sad Christmas present for everyone who suffers from unemployment.
– I am afraid this will raise the bar for those who find it difficult to enter the labor market. We should not close all the doors to working life, says Asheim NRK.
The Fougner Committee says temporary employment in Norway is low compared to other OECD countries. In addition, it has declined somewhat in recent decades.
– When we made this change, there were warning lights that would lead to more people being hired temporarily. But it is very strictly structured and the number of temporary is reduced.
– So it’s not popular anyway, is this their plan?
– The goal is not to employ as many people as possible temporarily, but to have flexibility. For a lot of people, it’s not between a permanent position or a temporary position, but whether or not they get a job, he says.
Labor Minister Hadia Tajik believes the unrest of Asheim and the Conservatives is unfounded for outsiders.
– They are wrong. This is what they have been promoting this legal change for the last eight years. But the research and knowledge one has does not provide coverage to say that it involves more people in working life, he says.
Tajik says the government is in the process of making a number of rule changes in working life. Another promise embodied in the Hartal Declaration is the re-introduction of the Joint Relief Act.
– This should be discussed first, so Tajik says Bill will come right in the new year.
The project was controversial when it was launched by red-greens in the spring of 2013. It was later removed by the Solberg government. This, among other things, happened after warnings from the Norwegian Bar Association, which vehemently opposed the policy that a union could sue if the employee concerned did not want to file a lawsuit.
But Tajik believes the right to action to reintroduce is important.
– He says the union should exist even if people are in a difficult situation and do not dare to report unacceptable conditions.
More is needed
Mimir Kristjansson of Rødt pays tribute to the government for fulfilling two election promises quickly, but believes more is needed:
– In many ways, they should do this now. The place where we really need to make an impact is in the employee industry. There, tough promises from the election campaign have now become rounder, he tells the NRK.
He looks up Promise in Aps’ Hundred Day Plan Hire transfers of permanent positions should be prohibited. Those words were not found in the hartal declaration, but Labor Minister Hadia Tajik has repeatedly denied that the promise was made to the NRK.
– The truth on the Hurdle platform is that Tajik told the NRK earlier this month that we want to stop hiring people who are shifting to permanent jobs.
Tajik allows special rules against hiring
