Bedriftsforbundet lodges a complaint against Norway

Bedriftsforbundet  v. Norway, Complaint No. 103/2013

[21/10/2013]  The complaint was registered on 9 September 2013.

The complaint is submitted on behalf of Bedriftsforbundet, a business and employers organisation for small and medium sized businesses in Norway.

The complaint relates to the long term practice at Norwegian ports, requiring that employees have membership of the dock workers union Norsk Transportarbeiderforbund (The Norwegian Transport Workers Union) in order to be allowed to take up work.

The complainant organisation alleges that this practice constitutes a breach of Article 5 (the right to organise) of the Revised Social Charter.
