The Norwegian Transport Workers'
Union (NTF) was
a trade union established on April 2, 1896 and
closed down on May 31, 2019. NTF was Norway's
largest trade union in logistics and
transport. The main areas of association were
drivers and workshop / maintenance personnel
in bus companies, warehousing / terminal
workers and drivers in the freight and
wholesale industry, newspaper carriers in
newspaper companies, taxi drivers, employees
in environmental companies (renovation and
recycling), freight drivers (long and short
haulage of goods) and dockers in the ports.
union had over 20,000 members spread across 16
unions across the country.
union's main administration, located in Oslo,
consisted of nine union representatives and nine
employees. NTF joined the National Organization
in Norway in 1907. The union was a member of the
International Transport Workers' Federation. the
last federal leader was Lars Morten Johnsen.
May 8, 2019, one extraordinary national meeting
resolved that NTF be closed down and merged with
the Joint Federation.
Østfold Transport Workers'
Association (ØTF) was founded on May 7, 1999 as a merger
of the city associations in Østfold. This was
done to make it a strong association with a
100% free-bought association leader in
Østfold. The association has since organized
most of the transport workers in Østfold,
except those employed at the Port. These have
been organized in the Forening 100 Havn.
May 8, 2019, it was decided that NTF should join
the Fellesforbunet, so all the old transport
workers' associations had to change their names
and numbers. Some could keep their old number.
1 January 2020, Østfold ceased to exist and we
became Viken. A merger of Akershus, Buskerud and
was not among those who could keep the old
number and our county was gone, so then we
simply and neatly changed our name to
FELLESFORBUNDET AVDELING 22 VIKEN. We are still
located at Astrids Gate 34 in Sarpsborg with
entrance from Sverres Gate.
