A just, green transition? Skills in the petroleum industry and needs in green industries

How can the petroleum workers' skills contribute to and be used in a green transition? What actions are needed for a just, green transition?

Age-management CSP

Fafo will assist Centre for Senior Policy (CSP) in the development and implementation of a management program on senior policy. The goal is to increase the real retirement age

Update - trade union density among labou immigrants

The Fafo working paper on "Union density among migrant workers" will be updated with the latest available figures, as well as figures for other immigrant groups. This will be used for the government's policy on integration, to be presented during the spring of 2024.

Evaluation of Health and Safety Card
Samfunnsøkonomisk analyse and Fafo are going to survey experiences with the HSE card system. The project aims to illuminate how the HSE card system in construction and civil engineering, cleaning, car maintenance, tire changing, and wheel storage contributes to reducing the incidence of labour market crime (a-crime) and social dumping. This includes assessing the extent to which HSE cards are subject to abuse, proposing measures to reduce such abuse, and enhancing the effectiveness of HSE card systems in reducing labour market crime and social dumping.
Wage levels in industries with extended collective agreements 2022

The project aims to assess the number of individuals who fall below or above the standardized wage rates in industries with extended collective agreements. The data source is Statistics Norway's wage statistics for 2022. The results will be compared to similar estimates for 2019-2021.

Bonus, collective agreement - or both?

The project will investigate the prevalence of bonuses in selected industries within the private sector, with a particular focus on linking the use of bonuses to whether the company is a party to a collective agreement.

Union busting

Internationally, "union busting" is a well-known phenomenon. The term encompasses attempts to undermine trade union activity, either by weakening the overall position of the trade unions or by preventing organization in specific workplaces. If we broaden the perspective  to include employers who try to prevent employees from organizing or resisting collective agreements in various ways, the phenomenon is also seen in Norway. In this project, we provide a more detailed explanation of the concept of union busting and examine how it manifests in today's Norwegian labor life.

Extent of work outside of normal daytime hours

The main research question of the project is to investigate the extent of work outside regular daytime hours, specifically work in the evening, night, and weekends. The need for knowledge is described as twofold, partly an investigation within the retail sector, and partly a comprehensive mapping.

Maintaining the leading sector wage bargaining model

Future of the Norwegian wage formation.

Unionizing labour immigrants

Only among 24 per cent of the labour immigrants in Norway are members of a trade union. In this project, we investigate why this is so. There is a need for more knowledge about how trade unions work to reach migrant workers and what experiences the organized migrant workers have had.

Equal measures for a diverse society

The diversity of the Norwegian population has received increasing attention in the development of public policy and services in recent decades. A diversity perspective implies an acknowledgement that the risk of violence and discrimination, the form and direction of the violations, as well as the victims' and practitioners' need for help, can vary between and within groups - based on constellations of and intersectional interaction between a number of dimensions of inequality and power, such as gender, age, social background, ethnicity, religion, functional ability, sexual orientation, etc.
