OSLO, Sept 30 (Reuters) - Norway's Lederne labour union said
on Wednesday it would escalate an oil workers' strike from Oct.
4 to four additional offshore fields.

Several dozen workers went on strike on Wednesday at Norway
and western Europe's largest oilfield, Johan Sverdrup, morning
after failing to agree a wage deal.

The strike will expand to the Equinor-operated
Gudrun, Gina Krog, Kvitebjoern and Neptune Energy-operated Gjoea
fields with 126 union members stopping work in four days' time,
it added.
