NAF and DSO in Noble had their first meeting on 16 May. The aim is that those with international contracts get a Norwegian contract. This applies to the positions OIM, MSL, STP, TP and TSL.
Challenges from the company and the employees' representatives were highlighted. All parties now go their separate ways with possible clarifications until the next meeting, which is scheduled to take place on 12 June.
Sick leave project
NAF has had a meeting with consultants who work at the firm Buhr. These have been given a mandate to survey all factors surrounding the high level of sickness absence. NAF has proposed a number of changes that should be considered. Some of these changes include introducing health insurance for all employees, reassessing the "light blue prescription", offering travel insurance to everyone (including leisure time), expanding accident insurance, offering financial advice for personal finances, discounted prices for gym/training clothes, great Christmas/ summer gifts, offer psychological help, grant subsidies so that cabins/apartments can be offered at greatly reduced prices for all employees.
NAF also asked them to look into follow-up of those who are called in sick. The routines if you fall ill must also be better communicated. Are there physical barriers that must also be worked on. The social factors are important, you have to feel good at work.
Personal information to an unknown address in the USA
Some employees in Norway have received an email from an agent requesting that personal information/copy of passport be sent to an unknown address. This includes new registration of the rigs in the Marshall Islands.
The company will prepare information for the employees.
NAF asks all employees who do not feel comfortable sending such information to wait for information from the company.
6 new apprentices have agreed to start their apprenticeship with us from mid-August.
Wage regulation onshore employees
NAF has signed a disagreement protocol regarding wage regulation for those who work onshore. The offer, which was not actually an offer, is far too low. Real negotiations have not been carried out, NAF believes. Then we have to wait and see what the Norwegian Shipping Association/IE does next in this case.
Salary negotiations offshore
The negotiations start in Oslo on Tuesday 23 May at 11.00. This includes everyone who works offshore. This is an interim settlement and we are then negotiating about finances, not technical provisions in the collective agreement.
