Norwegian unions prepared for support action in solidarity with the NNN as the company dug in and attempted to employ strikebreakers. Industri Energi gave notice of sympathy action to block delivery of shipping material. The transport workers’ union made preparations to halt transport and the NNN was prepared to shut down all salmon production.
In the course of the strike the union received solidarity messages from unions around the world and important support from Solidarity in Poland and the foodworkers’ union LMPS in Lithuania, respectively, home countries to many of the migrant workers at Norse Production. The NNN has expressed its warm appreciation for the extensive international support it received during the long, tough struggle.
