On Tuesday afternoon, Industri Energi broke off the negotiations with the Norwegian Shipowners’ Association in the wage settlement for workers on the Mobile Offshore Units. – The gap between the parties was too great, says Frode Alfheim, leader of Industri Energi.
Industri Energi has today reported breach in the negotiations with the Norwegian Shipowners’ Association on the Collective Agreement for workers on the Mobile Offshore Units which includes the union’s members on mobile offshore units, as well as platform drilling on permanently placed facilities on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.
The negotiations that have been going on in Oslo since Monday morning have not been successful.
– Our members and shopstewards have taken on great responsibility over the years of crisis in the industry. The Rig industry is now on the rise, then it is right and reasonable that we should be compensated, says leader Frode Alfheim in Industri Energi.
The settlement is now up for mediation. The date has not yet been set, but if there is no consensus obtained with the assistance of the Chief State Mediator, there will be industrial actions in the rig industri. See www.industrienergi.no for updated information.
Industri Energi has 4150 members within the scope of this industry. The figure also includes members working outside the Norwegian Shelf, temporary workers and personnel on long-term sick leave.
During the negotiations, Industri Energi had regular dialogue with Safe and the Cooperating Organizations (DSO).
