Skolenes landsforbund

The Norwegian Union of School Employees (Skolenes landsforbund) organizes teachers, school leaders, and other professionals within the education system. This includes driving school teachers.

Joing det strongest team

The Norwegian Union of School Employees is a member of the Norwegian Confederation of Trade Unions (LO) and that includes The Norwegian Federation of State Employees’ Unions (LO Stat) and The Norwegian Federation of Municipality Employees’ Unions (LO Kommune).

The Norwegian Union of School Employees was founded in 1982. Before that we were a branch within the union of NTL.

The union’s aim is as part of the labour movement to:

  • work towards a good, democratic public education system
  • work towards good pay and working conditions 

Member benefits

The most important task of the Norwegian Union of School Employees is to ensure the members’ pay and working conditions.

The membership gives you co-determination and influence at work. Through the endorsement to LO (The Norwegian Confederation of Trade Unions) you will be part of a comradeship with more than 950.000 other trade unionists.

The Norwegian Union of School Employees is, in addition to this, concerned about your welfare privately and offers other member benefits.

Included in the membership you get LOfavør Innboforsikring, which is the best contents insurance in Norway. This insurance has given members safety for more than 50 years.

Did you know that?

  • The contents insurance is part of your membership.
  • There is no maximum insurance amount to be paid out.
  • If you have an individual contents insurance, you should terminate it, so you don’t have to pay double.
  • This contents insurance together with LOfavør House insurance will give you more advantages.

This you should know!

  • If you own your own house, you need a house insurance. We recommend LOfavør husforsikring.
  • You may need a special insurance for bunad, photo equipment and other things when used outside your home.
  • If you have objects or possessions valued more than NOK 300.000, these should have an additional insurance.

The terms of the contents insurance are available in Norwegian
