Dates for the talks

The other parties to the offshore agreements are the Norwegian Union of Industry and Energy Workers (Industry Energy), the Norwegian Union of Energy Workers (Safe) and the Norwegian Organisation of Managers and Executives.

Talks on the offshore and oil service agreements primarily cover workers employed offshore. The offshore agreements apply to operator, drilling and catering companies, while the oil service agreements cover workers both offshore and on land in oil service companies.

Negotiations on the other agreements which Norwegian Oil and Gas is a party to will be conducted in the second half of May – first for the land bases and then for workers on land. Negotiations are pursued with Industry Energy and Parat in the first case, and with Industry Energy and Safe in the second.
