Norway oil firms, workers agree 2.8 pct wage rise

OSLO, May 4 (Reuters) - Norwegian oil firms and their employees early on Friday agreed a wage deal that gives workers on offshore oil and gas rigs a 2.8 percent pay rise for 2018, the companies said.

Labour unions separately confirmed a deal had been reached.

Under the country’s system of collective bargaining, workers would not have had a right to go on strike this year even if talks had broken down. (Reporting by Terje Solsvik Editing by Shri Navaratnam)
