Offshore rig workers in Norway reached a wage deal with employers on Wednesday to avoid a strike.

Two unions representing workers who operate oil drilling rigs reached a deal with the Norwegian Shipowners’ Association, representing their employers, the Safe and Industri Energi unions said.

Hilde-Marit Rysst, head of Safe, said, “We achieved results for some of our demands but had to compromise on other demands in this particular instance.”

“We are pleased with the overall financial settlement,” said Leif Sande, head of the Industri Energi union.
