Norway union Safe to take 664 offshore workers on strike if talks fail


Norwegian labor union Safe will take 664 members on strike at offshore oil and gas installations from June 28 if a state-sponsored wage mediation with employers fails, it said on Friday.

While some of the workers are involved in oil and gas production, and thus could have a direct impact on ongoing production from Norwegian fields, most of those affected are in drilling and catering services.

The larger Industri Energi union earlier this week said it planned a strike of 922 workers if the talks fail, taking the overall number that could go on strike to almost 1,600 employees.
