In December, the Safe og Industri unions sued to the Norwegian Shipowners' Association, which represents 18 rig companies, for failing to pay night charges on behalf of 7,500 employees. At the time, the unions lost the case in court. As such, the unions have now opted to pursue the case through the court of appeals, according to Norwegian newspaper Dagens Næringsliv.

Alexander Lindboe, lawyer at the association Industri Energi, describes the previous ruling as weak, stating that it fails to clarify how the night charge pay should be understood.
