The case is updated.

The Norwegian pilots, the Norwegian Pilot Union (NPU), have not agreed with the company on a new collective agreement. This is stated by the trade union Parat in a press release.

The settlement will now proceed to mediation with a deadline of 31 May.

It is the Norwegian pilots and Parat who negotiate with Norwegian and NHO on the other side.

Leader of the Norwegian pilots, Alf Hansen, says the distance is great and that “the danger of a strike is great, if the company does not meet the pilots”. According to Hansen, there is disagreement about both pay and working time regulations.

During working hours, he highlights the balance between work and private life, predictability, and that the pilots work many weekends and holiday periods.

– We pilots have to be at work when most people want to go out and travel, but like others we also have to have a life with the family outside of work. Demands have therefore been put forward for a more even workload and a longer notification period for changes to the work programme, says Hansen.

On pay, Hansen believes that for several years Norwegian pilots have lost out to pilots elsewhere in Europe, both within and outside the company.

– Through difficult periods and reconstruction in the company, we have contributed to growth and profit. Now is the time to close the pay gap for colleagues in the company who work at other bases in Europe. The company must realize that we are part of a European labor market, and we must be paid accordingly, says Hansen.
