About NTL Ung

Our goal is to secure safe and fair working conditions and wages for all workers. As a member in NTL you can join the fight for justice at work together with more than 54,000 colleagues.


NTL is a trade union with over 54,000 members, and most 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 a membership discount for students at university colleges and universities.

What is NTL Ung

NTL Ung is the youth organization for NTL members below 35. We offer students and young employees a framework for activism and participation, education and sharing of knowledge, and an opportunity to meet other young union activists. Our goal is that you have good conditions both at campus and at your workplace. NTL Ung has an office co-located with NTL in Oslo. If you would like us to visit your workplace with more information, please email us at ung@ntl.no. We offer workshops and lectures on political issues as well as our policy on wages and working conditions.

Solidarity for all

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, fighting climate change and in international social issues. Read more about our political stands in our platform.


What we do

NTL’s goals include bringing about quality-driven improvements in public administration and state enterprises. We also work for improvements in pay and condition, 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.


Pay negotiation

NTL’s main position is that pay should be negotiated collectively with strike action being the ultimate response to conflict resolution. NTL generally argues for nationwide negotiations covering all employees in the sector, to secure fair wages for all.


Local representation and individual support

There are 3000 NTL trade union representatives at workplaces throughout Norway. Our union reps are well trained and skilled in supporting our members. Don’t hesitate to get in touch if needed.

Terms and conditions

The membership fee for NTL is 1.1% of your income. In most cases the fee is deducted from your pay, and to achieve this NTL regularly transfers membership information to employers. As a consequence, membership in NTL is not secret.

In addition to the membership fee you pay a premium for the collective LOfavør insurance schemes: Home contents insurance which automatically follows the membership, and an optional travel insurance (that you’ll have to cancel if not wanted).

You may deduct trade union membership fees from your taxes. The limit for this deduction is kr 3850. Read more about this on the web pages of the Norwegian Tax Administration (Skatteetaten).


Terms and conditions for students

Student members pay 250 per semester, and you’ll get a tax return if you have a part time job. The price includes the home contents insurance and there’s no excess payment with damage. You should make sure that your income doesn’t exceed the income limits for funding from the Norwegian State Educational Loan Fund (Lånekassen).
