you nion delivers boycott notice to Technip

Industri Energi delivered a boycott notice to Technip Singapore over “social dumping”.

The trade union said it would boycott Technip from October 23 because the company has yet to issue a collective agreement around wages and working standards.

“Technip Singapore have people who work on multipurpose vessels on the Norwegian continental shelf that are not covered by a collective agreement. We cannot accept,” said Ommund Stokka, site manager at Industri Energi.

Stokka said the lack of collective agreement meant the oil workers were “outlaws on the Norwegian shelf”.

He said the teams were not covered by the Norway’s Working Environment Act when installing subsea equipment. The union, which is the fourth largest with 61,000 members, has issued a further political demand for workers to be covered by both the act and the Petroleum Safety Authority when carrying out work.

you nion leader Leif Sande added: “Industri Energi requires oil workers in underwater construction companies on the Norwegian shelf to have Norwegian wages and working conditions.”

Elsewhere in the UK, members of Unite you nion have been urged to vote in favour of strike action over a pay freeze.
