On Tuesday evening, Industri Energi and Norwegian Oil and Gas agreed on this year’s salary settlement for the oil service.

Among other things, the parties agreed to a general addition of 7,166, and one krone in night, and shift, surcharge for oil service staff.

During this year’s wage settlement, all oil service employees were also secured a supplementary 9,100, applicable from January the 1st this year.

‘I’m pleased with this year’s settlement. We’ve secured our members in oil service companies a good settlement, where the main issues formed the framework,’ said union boss, Frode Alfheim, of Industri Energi in a press release.

This year’s salary settlement is only an interim measure, achieved without strikes or other industrial action. Local negotiations continue within the oil-service companies, both for those working offshore, and office workers on land.
