Members with International contract
NAF has claimed Norwegian employment for all our members with international contracts.
We are waiting to see how the company will react to this, so for that reason we cannot inform more right now.
We have asked the company to look into the possibility of getting health insurance for our members. This will be a great advantage, we therefore hope that we can make an agreement.
We will follow up on the matter at the upcoming meetings.
Rig visit on Invincible
We managed to visit Invincible in Åmøyfjorden five times, and thus we managed to meet with most of our members. But regardless of this we will also follow up with some heliport meetings.
We got many good inputs and had a lot of good discussions.
One of the biggest topics was of course the manning situation and how things will go on in future on the Norwegian shelf.
The company states that we have reasons to be optimistic, and that they have a good dialogue going on with the alliance with AkerBP about reducing the so-called coming "white spaces". This to prevent that we are not getting too long periods without contracts, that in worst cases can result in the need of down manning.
The company also states that they have a good dialogue with Repsol regarding extension of the contract for the manning of Inspirer.
Of course we must clearly point out that no new agreements have been signed yet, but as they say the dialogue is good and there is optimism.
In addition to this, the company is also working seriously on making agreements with several other operators in Norway. Hopefully we are looking forward to more stability.
NAF Info screens
We have installed info screens in both coffee shops on Invincible and sent out two screens to Integrator. We thank those who have helped with the mounting work and the technical solutions on Invincible and we will of course be very grateful to get similar help from the Integrator crew.
The screens are a supplement to the informations on the NAF site. Short news updates from NAF will be published here, as well as continuous updates from Norwegian, Danish and British news channels and whatever else we can come up with. We are of course open for feedback about what else we should publish on the screens.
In addition, you can download an APP so that you can access the news via your phone (follow instruction on the screen)
The negotiations are set to start on May 23.
The annual meeting has already decided what we shall bring into the negotiations, and those claims have already been sent in.
But before the negotiations we will meet with the other clubs in NR-Forum in week 16 to discuss and to collate our claims.
For the sake of the negotiations, we cannot write what we will go for.
NAF Board meeting
The next meeting will be held at Hotel Clarion Energy on 3-4 May.
