Now the Workers unions and the SA-Confederation of Icelandic Employers ( SA ) are now negotiations of collective agreements with unions on wages and working conditions.
But trouble is in the negotiations ,because the SA is also asking for that the The Federation of Icelandic Fishing Vessel Owners,get answers about the fishing quota.
About 20 years ago ,Fishing vessel owners, go fishing quota on their ships.
The did not pay for or rent it.
And a few years later, they had the right to sell it ,rent it to others boats and so on.
But accourding to the Iceland constitution , the fish in the sea, is owned by the people of Iceland .
Now they want the goverment to decide that they own the fishing right legally.
The goverment is not for that.
They have never payed for this rights,and have made a lot of meony out of fishing and not payed anyting for it.
The SA is now using this in negotations with the Unions , to force the goverment to make a decision.
The Unions are angry, saying that the SA is usig the Union in a mtter that does not belong on the negotiatins table.
So , there could be big strikes amongs the Unions members in the latter part of May .
