Unifor represents nearly 400 workers on hibernia, the world`s largest offshore oil rig, off the coast of Newfoundland and Labrador. The new agreement strengthens the rollover differential, incentive premiums, travel reimbursement and leave rights. The contract, including wage increases, is part of Unifor`s national energy model agreement, which is negotiated across the country and implemented across the country. ST. JOHN`S – Unifor Local 2121 members have ratified a four-year collective agreement that represents an 11.75 percent increase over the duration of the contract. Payne said non-unionized workers in Newfoundland and Labrador were also crushed after jobs were “put back in the room” to create openings for workers in other countries.

The collective agreement between hibernia Platform Employers` Organization (“Employers”) and Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union of Canada, Local 2121 (“Union”) provides for a drug and alcohol policy. Following a helicopter safety incident on the Hibernia offshore oil rig, the employer is conducting an investigation: eight employees are being asked to conduct drug testing. After the test, one of them will be positive for the unauthorized drug. Payne said the term was ambiguous and the union was lobbying the provincial government to amend the Labour Relations Act to better protect local workers. The new agreement provides for improvements in wages, benefits and working conditions, including for temporary workers. It was adopted by a margin of 58% and expires on June 30, 2019. Unifor represents nearly 400 people on the platform. “This is hard work in one of the toughest environments in the world and we are very proud to represent offshore oil industry workers,” said Dave Moffat, Assistant To the President at Unifor.
