Norway -Oil services workers to be balloted on pay deal -September 21, 2012

On-shore oil workers unions and employers have reached a preliminary agreement that will be voted upon by union members. The deal includes a 4.5% wage increase and further increases. Trade union negotiators said the deal is very good in monetary terms but less so in regard to shift-work. The negotiations between on-shore workers and the oil industry were moved into state-led mediation after bilateral talks failed. If the deal is accepted, it will avoid a strike by services workers.
