NAF is now preparing for a possible strike. The shipowners made an offer that was too low, we submitted a counterclaim, then the shipowners broke.
If an agreement is not reached by midnight, the night of Thursday 29 June, there will be a strike. The strike is then a fact at Noble Integrator. At the same time, 11 other units/locations in our area will be taken out on strike on the NCS.
What does this mean for those of you who are on board, or will be on board, if the strike is implemented?
First of all, the rig must be shut down. How this is to be done must be clear and handed over to IE if the strike becomes a fact. It is NDN and AkerBP (Operator) who will hand over the "shutdown procedure".
A security crew must then be established on board.
A local safety manning protocol for each individual unit must be drawn up at any time, this can be found here: The final name of who is included in the safety manning has not yet been determined, but seniority in position on board the rig is the triggering factor. The second criteria is that everyone has the qualifications for specific emergency response functions.
Those who are not part of the safety crew on board will have to risk traveling onshore. Then the company can/will probably think that you are no longer earning a salary, so you are on strike.
So what do I do then, apparently I have to go home?
Industri Energi gives you line support which is currently NOK 223,- per hour during the hours you were actually supposed to work. This is a tax-free payment. NAF is considering whether to provide strike support, but this has not yet been decided.
If you are not part of the safety crew on board and are not traveling for work, then the above applies. In other words, you get strike support from Industri Energi and any strike support is additionally provided from NAF.
Those who are part of the safety crew on board will maintain their salary.
Then it should be mentioned. Normally in the case of strikes offshore, the employer pays wages to all those who were not entitled to wages if an agreement is reached when the parties meet and agree during the strike, i.e. wages are paid in arrears.
We will have a direct dialogue with every single member on board Integrator if the strike becomes a fact.
