Welcome to LO Norway

The Norwegian Confederation of Trade Unions (LO) is decidedly the largest and most influential workers' organisation in Norway. LO has a strong position in society and has set its stamp on society's development for more than 100 years.

  • About 900 000 workers are affiliated to the 22 national unions which in turn are affiliated to LO.
  • The affiliated unions are often vertically organised, including both blue and white collar workers, and cover both the private and the public sectors.
  • About 50 per cent of LO’s members are women. In some national unions, women make up three quarters of the membership.
