Roodt's newly elected deputy will make air travel more expensive than ever (distinguished name)
100,000 additional fees per year for round trip Oslo Bergen? Yes, if you do it several times a week, suggests Sophie Marhaug, Rødt's new vice president. Deputy Leader Roodt's proposal would not have much to say for a family that travels once a year, but it does have a lot to say about a company that sends its employees back and forth several times a year.

Marhaug explains: – If we want to have a fair climate policy, we must reduce air traffic between cities where trains are an alternative, such as Oslo and Bergen. The escalating fees, which become more expensive if you travel multiple times between these cities, will not only force people to cut back on their trips. It will also force companies to choose environmentally friendly products, she says. Read more

Anger at the government: – Nepotism (NRK “Political Quarter”)
Both right and left believe that the strike between academics and Unio is completely understandable. – They face being deprived of the collective agreement they feel satisfied with, says MP Anna Molberg from the Conservative Party.

– Salary settlement in the state has become very political. The government will force academics and UNIO members into a collective agreement managed by the LO. “We see this as LO-commissioned work that the government is absorbing with complete sincerity,” says Molberg. She believes that this would also be a matter of constitutional freedom of association in Norway.

– There is no doubt that the government here is planning a policy that favors the trade unions, namely the LO, thus concentrating more power on Youngstorget and weakening other independent trade unions, she says.

Karianne Olderness Tong (AFP), the Minister for Digitalization and Administration responsible for state-side negotiations, believes the government is doing the opposite by weakening freedom of association. -I've always been concerned that we should get equal pay for equal work, no matter where you are organized. Unio and Akademikerne negotiated 100% of the salary locally. The state has gone further and offered 75 percent of wage creation locally, says Olderness Tong.

– We get very clear feedback from managers in state institutions such as universities, from Nav and from the Customs Office, where you see that colleagues who sit and work in an adjacent office get different salary arrangements because they are organized in different places. To me, everyone in the state deserves the same and everyone should get a pay raise no matter where they are organized. Listen to the broadcast

I think more people would have a power cable than Barum: – Very bad signal (E24)
Frp and Rødt believe that the requirements for onshore and offshore cables for various power connections may become stronger in the future. The reason is that the government agreed to lay an underground cable and tunnel between Hamang in Barum and Semstad in Oslo. Storting representatives from both Frp and Rødt asked the government questions about this.

– It will be a nightmare to locate power lines in the future. Now everyone expects that they will be able to lay cables either at sea or on land, and that the bill will be borne by electricity consumers, Terry Halliland (Frp) tells E24. Underground and submarine cables can cost several billion kroner more than overhead lines. It is the grid customers who share in the bill for developing the electricity network. Read more

Friends like us (Kristin Finn Brosgaard, Head of the Intelligence School) (DN)
In a world that is becoming increasingly unpredictable, we must build close relationships with those closest to us. Because although today the Norwegian Defense Forces are better equipped to deal with crises or wars, we remain completely dependent on our close allies. Although many people often talk about the United States as our most important ally, it is Britain and the Nordic countries that will be able to provide assistance to Norway first. These, our closest neighbors, are the ones who feel the same way we do. Read more
