Norwegian regrets to inform that the pilot strike continues

Press Releases   •   Mar 07, 2015 14:07 GMT

Norwegian has during mediation  presented an offer that will give the Scandinavian pilots job security, a job  guarantee for three years, keep their salaries and, not least, have a connection  with the mother company. It is therefore extremely disappointing that it was not  possible to reach an agreement with Norwegian Pilot Union and Parat at the state  mediator’s office. This means that sadly, the strike will  continue.

Norwegian apologizes to everyone concerned that the pilot strike in Norwegian  continues. The mediation at the national mediator’s office was unsuccessful  after many hours of negotiations on Friday and Saturday morning. Norwegian has a  strong wish to end the strike; the company has therefore stretched as far as  possible in order to end the strike and create amity within the company.  Norwegian has presented assurances to NPU on key points, including a job  guarantee and job security, as well as a connection to the company.

New  meetings were not scheduled following the end of mediation on Saturday morning,  but NPU did receive a final offer via email on Saturday morning. NPU has been  urged to consider the offer and meet again for negotiations. This is what the  pilots in Norwegian Air Norway (NAN) have been offered:

- A guarantee of  employment for three years for all pilots in Scandinavia (i.e. a guarantee  against downsizing in the pilot companies)

- Group seniority for all B737 pilots (shprt haul)

- Solid career opportunities, also on the long-haul flights (B787)

-  Unchanged salaries (average salary for a captain, approx. 1.1 million NOK per  year before insurance and  pensions, first officers approx. 740,000 NOK per year before insurance and pensions)

- A minimum of 184 days off per year (almost the same as today)

-  Pension: The highest rate on contributory pension (innskuddspensjon), including  benefit pension scheme (ytelsespensjon) for those who have ten years or less  left until retirement

- A Loss of License insurance of 40G; a tax-free payment of approximately 3.5  million NOK

- Joint negotiation for the Norwegian, Swedish and Danish  pilots

Norwegian lost 1.6 billion NOK in 2014. The company has since  October 2014 been in discussions with NPU and Parat to jointly identify cost  savings and efficiency, without success.

Enough is enough: Parat and NPU must meet at the negotiating table immediately

Press Releases   •   Mar 05, 2015 12:57 GMT

Norwegian will soon experience its seventh day of pilot strike - it's a state of emergency throughout the whole company. Enough is enough. Over 100,000 passengers have already been affected by the pilot strike. Norwegian Air Norway’s (NAN) management has received all authorizations from the management of the parent company Norwegian Air Shuttle to get the entire company out of the crisis that has been created. The management also has a clear desire to give the pilots in Norway, Sweden and Denmark a real opportunity to personally control their own professional future within the company.

Last night’s attempt to get the negotiations moving, were unsuccessful. Norwegian Air Norway’s negotiators wanted to bring Norway’s national mediator, Nils Dalseide, who was ready to step in. However, NPU and Parat did not want him to attend.

The situation is not the same for the three Scandinavian countries. Norwegian has been contacted by Swedish and Danish pilots who are very clear about not wanting to risk their own workplace as a result of the Norwegian pilots’ claim for contributory pensions. The Danish pilots are already on a Danish contribution scheme, while Swedes also have their own pension scheme.

Norwegian’s goal has always been to reach a solution together with NPU and Parat, but the management will not and cannot let one group of employees take control over the whole group. Therefore, NAN has now given NPU and Parat one last opportunity to come to the negotiating table immediately, where the demands for an agreement with the parent company and commercial control of the company are out.

The countdown begins; the deadline for NPI and Parat is 3 p.m. today.
