The OK18 labour dispute has been postponed again
On the night of 17 April, the official conciliator decided to postpone the strike and lockout for up to two weeks.
On the night of 17 April, conciliator Mette Christiansen decided to postpone the strike and lockout for up to two weeks. Unless the negotiating parties reach a compromise – or an impasse – before the end of the two-week period, this means that the strike will begin on 6 May and the lockout will begin on 12 May.
If the negotiations break down within the two-week period, the strike and the lockout may begin simultaneously five days after the official conciliator declares the end of negotiations. If this happens, there is no possibility of postponing the labour dispute further.
The OK18 website will be updated regularly as new information becomes available.
