More than 300 members of the Industri Energi union went on strike yesterday after wage talks broke down with the Norwegian Oil Industry Association.
Unite assistant general secretary Tony Burke sent the following message to Leif Sande, head of Industri Energi.
We are aware of your dispute on the North Sea with 335 of your members now on strike after mediation talks between the Norwegian Oil and Gas Association broke down at Schlumberger Norway, Baker Hughes Norway, Halliburton, Oceaneering and Oceaneering Asset Integrity.
Would you please send this message of support to your members from Unite.
Your Union has our full support and if you need help just please ask.
We know the oil sector is having a difficult period but the demands from employers are increasingly unacceptable to our unions and members.
We must now stick together in difficult times.
Assistant General Secretary
