Reykjavík city

Efling has met with the city’s representatives over several month. No progress has been made to talk of. The negotiation committee of Efling does not have much hope for the approach seen at meetings so far. Strikes have begun.


A shorter working week has bee discussed. The unions emphasise an actual shortening of working time in these agreements. A trial project by the authorities has shown that well-being, health and work environment all see improvements with such a shortening.

Icelandic Association of Local Authorities
