Parallel talks were conducted by Offshore Norge with the Norwegian Union of Industry and Energy Workers (Industry Energy) and the Norwegian Union of Energy Workers (Safe) on the oil service and well service settlements respectively. The agreements with these unions are identically worded.
This year’s negotiations involved an intermediate settlement limited to adjusting pay rates.
Agreement was reached with Industry Energy and Safe on increasing the rates in the pay matrix by NOK 46 890 with effect from 1 June, including offshore compensation and holiday pay.
That also includes the supplement agreed in the central negotiations earlier this year by the Confederation of Norwegian Enterprise (NHO) with the Norwegian Confederation of Trade Unions (LO) and the Confederation of Vocational Unions (YS). The present settlements are in line with the framework agreed at that time.
The shift/night work supplement will rise by NOK 5 per hour, while remuneration for public holidays goes up by NOK 75.
