Tekna held a seminar “Working and living in Norway” intended for foreign workers or PhD candidates.
We learned about the “Norwegian Model”. This includes the Norwegian wage system, the part Tekna can have in wage negotiations and we heared about Tekna’s position as both a trade union and a society.
Watch recording from the seminar:
The initiative to this seminar is taken by Tekna Forskerne, since a lot of our members, for instance PhD candidates scientists, comes from abroad.
