The Norwegian Food and Allied Workers Union (NNN) is the trade union for all those who work in the food industry. We have almost 30,000 members, and together with the other unions that make up the Norwegian Confederation of Trade Unions (LO) our combined membership is over 900,000. The union was founded in 1923, so we have more than 90 years’ experience of setting up collective agreements. We are specialists in pay and working conditions, and are proud of what we have achieved.
The Norwegian Food and Allied Workers Union is non-partisan and independent. However, that doesn’t mean that we don’t have opinions. We are involved in all areas that have a bearing on our members’ working day. We lobby the political parties to contribute to reasonable framework conditions in our industry, and we participate in consultations in the Norwegian parliament. We are involved in international efforts, and provide financial support to Norwegian People’s Aid’s important work in Norway and abroad.
We are an organisation that wants to take part in the societal debate. We know that our members prefer straight talking!
The Norwegian Food and Allied Workers Union has local branches and county co-ordinators throughout Norway, where members can receive assistance or take part in activities. Our members are organised into workplace groups, where they have a designated employee representative to help them. Our headquarters are in Oslo.
