The 623 members of EL & IT Forbundet (Electricians' and IT workers' Union) at Telenor who were called on strike are now returning to their jobs after the parties reached an agreement late Monday afternoon.

On 10 May, 455 of EL & IT Forbundet's members in Telenor went on strike, followed by an additional 168 members on 23 May. The strike has affected various units of Telenor and Opplysningen 1881 (Directory Services) all over Norway.
