Two large unions covering a total of 7,500 employees in the Norwegian oil and gas industry have filed a joint lawsuit against 10 rig companies, including Maersk Drilling Norway, Transocean, Norsk Offshore Catering AS, Ocean Rig North Sea, Odfjell Drilling, and others in a case concerning night charges in the employees' pensions, according to Offshore.no.

Stavanger Tingrett and Gulating lagmannsrett have allowed the unions Industri Energi and SAFE to file the suits under a joint lawsuit in their claim to make the night charge part of the employees' pensions. As it stands, only individually paid employees at the companies are having their night charges included in their fixed salaries, and thus in their pensions, says Offshore.no.
