Pay negotiations postponed

The tragic helicopter crash off Turøy outside Bergen on Friday affects the whole industry, and it has therefore been decided to postpone negotiations over the offshore pay agreements.

Thirteen people lost their lives in the crash, and several of the member companies in the Norwegian Oil and Gas Association are affected. The negotiations due to begin tomorrow, 2 May, have accordingly been postponed.

A new date will be announced in the course of the week.
