Trond Giske has been appointed chairman of the board of the Labor Economics Association, reports Adresseavisen.
They have a general meeting on June 17th. The Association of Economic Workers (AØF) owns and operates the People's House in Trondheim.
"I received a request if I could take a job there, and I can." It is a house that means a lot to me, with tenants who are close to my heart. So when I was asked, I almost saw it as a commitment to contribute when I now have time, says Giske to Adresseavisen.
Pål Sture Nilsen, chairman of the AØF electoral committee, says the former chief of the AP was almost born and raised in the People's House, among other things, through positions at the AUF and the Labor Party.
"He has his feet firmly planted in the labor movement, and in addition, he is a former Minister of Commerce and Culture, so of course he has some experience with him," Nilsen tells the newspaper.
Last year, Giske resigned as Labor Party vice chairman as a result of several notifications, but rejected allegations of sexual harassment. He lost his seat in the central government of Aps and resigned his position as a fiscal spokesman.
He was elected to the Storting as representative of Sør-Trøndelag, and in early June he married Haddy Njie in Nidaros Cathedral.
