The mediations between the parties on August 13 resulted in the first Industri Energi members going on strike from Monday, August 15. There were no Hydro employees among these.
The strike has now been stepped up as Industri Energi has taken out 655 of its members at Hydro Sunndal. The strike takes effect from Monday, August 22.
The strike at Hydro Sunndal will affect production at the primary metal plant. The impact on production is regulated by a separate agreement, which states how production is to be reduced in a responsible manner and how both parties contribute.
According to the shutdown agreement, 20 percent of production will be shut down during the first four weeks.
No other of Hydro's plants are affected by the strike at Hydro Sunndal.
