Oil strikers: Unwilling to continue fight

Striking oil workers offshore Norway have decided not to escalate their industrial action which has resulted in production shutdowns.

And Norway's oil industry association the OLF says it is interpreting the decision not to increase action as a sign that oil unions have little stomach for continuing the stoppage.

“We take this as a signal that they’re ready to drop their demand for discretionary pension benefits to be included in the pay agreement, and are seeking dialogue,” stated  OLF chief negotiator Jan Hodneland.

Both the Industry Energy and Norwegian Union of Energy Workers have said they are not prepared to increase their action in support of their pension claim.

And the OLF says the unions are talking publicly about anything but the issue at the core of the strike – pension arrangements.

“The fact that the unions are now talking about everything but pensions – which is the actual point at issue – is another signal that they’re unlikely to insist on this demand,” added Hodneland.
