Norway -Several pay deals for oil workers -August 17, 2014

Trade union SAFE came to an agreement with oil service companies, calling off a strike that would have affected a unit of Baker Hughes. Some 89 oil workers would have walked off the job if the talks had failed. Collective agreements cover about 6,000 workers employed at oil service firms.

In recent weeks two trade unions representing workers who operate in the oil industry have settled pay deals (see also our June Newsletter). Trade union SAFE came to an agreement with oil service companies, calling off a strike that would have affected a unit of Baker Hughes. Some 89 oil workers would have walked off the job if the talks had failed. In addition to the union members at Baker Hughes, the deal will cover those working at oil service firms Schlumberger, Oceaneering NCA and Vetco Gray, a part of General Electric Co, the Norwegian Oil and Gas Association said in a statement. The agreement is identical to an agreement on pay reached by the other trade union Industri Energi and the Norwegian Oil and Gas Association in July 2014. Collective agreements cover about 6,000 workers employed at oil service firms.
