Norway -Mediation leads to oil-rig workers agreement -June 24, 2015

Lowest-paid workers to get an increase of more than 1 percent, others 1%.

Oil-rig trade unions and employers started government-backed mediation in a final bid. The talks led to a new wage deal for offshore oil rig workers, avoiding a strike that could have cut energy production on two North Sea oil fields. Union representatives said all workers would get a 1 percent wage increase and added that the minimum raise would be 5,500 Norwegian crowns (630 euro) per year. This means the lowest-paid workers would get an increase of more than 1 percent.
