Journalists went on strike for the first time in Norway on Sunday after the Journalist Union and the Newspaper Publishers' Assn. failed to agree on a contract, Norwegian Radio reported. The union and employers had agreed on wage rates but were unable to agree on union demands for improved working conditions and the right of the union to negotiate for all of its members.

The battle between foreign correspondent Arthur Kent and NBC News escalated Monday, with Kent donning a safari jacket and handing out leaflets in front of network headquarters in New York and NBC firing back with a press release calling the correspondent's behavior "bizarre and unfortunate." Kent was suspended in the midst of a contract dispute with the network for refusing an assignment to Zagreb, Croatia, to cover U.N. teams inspecting internment camps in nearby Serbia.

A strike by editorial workers at the Chicago Sun-Times was postponed when the newspaper's management made a new contract proposal, a Sun-Times executive said. The offer was forwarded to members of Chicago Newspaper Guild Local 71, which represents 250 reporters, editors, photographers and support staff, 90 minutes after a strike deadline had passed and the guild had "frozen the clock."

Reporters at three Bay Area newspapers voted to withhold their bylines from stories in today's editions as negotiators working to avert a strike at two of the three papers faced a union-imposed deadline of 5 p.m. today. "This is a way to show our displeasure with the pace of the negotiations," said one reporter involved in the job action. "While it may seem trivial to readers, our hope is that it will hit home to some of the executives in the glass booths."

ABC's Ted Koppel, still negotiating a new contract but refusing to talk about it, tonight starts a week of live, longer-than-usual "Nightline" broadcasts from Israel. The Israel visit by "Nightline" is its fourth overseas trip since the program began in March, 1980, during the Iranian hostage crisis. Why this expedition?
