The trade union SAFE and Industri Energi lost a case in the Stavanger District Court but choose to continue their pension battle on behalf of 7,500 current and past rig workers at 18 companies. The workers think the differential they receive for working at night should be counted in pensions calculations. According to trade unions the ruling contains weaknesses, amongst others how the night shift differential is to be interpreted. They have now chosen to take their case to the Court of Appeal.
