Join our struggle!

As a union member you can take part in the struggle for fairness at work along with some 50.000 colleagues.

NTL is a trade union with some 50,000 members, many of whom are employed in the state sector. We also have members in a number of other public sector enterprises. All ­staff at these workplaces are eligible for membership of NTL, irrespective of educational background and position. NTL also has special membership terms for students at university colleges and universities.

NTL’s goals include bringing about quality-driven improvements in public administration and state enterprises. We also work for improvements in personnel policy and for greater opportunities for professional development. NTL’s aim is a pay policy based on the principle of solidarity, which also safeguards the interests of employees with higher education.

There are 3000 NTL trade union representatives at work­places throughout Norway. They are well trained and will be there for you when you need help, for example during a dispute at your place of work.

Our aim is to ensure that you feel that you work in a secure job in a good working environment. We ­believe that you should have a salary that you can live on and working hours that you can live with.

We want a society that is safe and fair for all. With this aim in mind, we play an active part in the development and renewal of the welfare state, and in international social ­issues.
