Norway -Wage agreement for oil drillers -September 4, 2012

After 159 oil drillers won a labour court case about the legality of their strike, union Industri Energi announced a strike for Sunday 2 September unless negotiations would yield an agreement. During late night negotiations on the eve of the strike, a wage agreement was found. The sides agreed to a 4.5% wage increase plus a one-off 3,641 crown (€490) cash supplement for 650 workers at services firm KCA Deutag. The settlement was reached after a crippling 16-day strike in July and amidst a breakdown of negotiations between on-shore workers and the oil industry.
