IMPORTANT NOTE 2) If you are hired under a Norwegian collective agreement, you may be required to pay a bargaining tax. The automatic deduction of these fees does NOT mean that you are a member of the NMOA. In order to participate in all the benefits of membership, you must complete an application form. If you want to become a member, you pay a union tax instead of the fee. The wage obligation is also abolished in the event of an illegal absence. The employment contract must be considered as a general condition of the reduction in wages in the event of an irregular absence. In addition, Section 4-2 2 of the Ship Work Act provides workers with a written pay slip, which is important to verify that the payment of wages, additional payments and potential deductions is made in accordance with the agreed terms. The requirements for the contents of the payslip are also set in section 5 of the payslip. The ability to make wage deductions is governed by Section 4-3 of the Ship Work Act. The Ship Work Act, Section 4-2, first paragraph, provides that workers working on board ships are entitled to a salary of at least once a month. On Norwegian ships, the level of wages and the method of calculation are determined by individual labour contracts and workers` collective agreements. Norwegian law does not regulate the minimum wage. In cases where term wages have been agreed, the provisions of the Ship Labour Act apply as usual in Section 4-1.
Workers can have. B a monthly wage agreement fixed on special terms. Under the ShipWorks Act, paragraph 4-2, the worker may also demand that all or part of the salary be transferred by bank transfer to others. This provision may be different in a collective agreement for NIS vessels, see NIS Section 8.3 Type Agreement The ITF type contract is usually signed as a result of union actions or if it is found that a company has broken a previous agreement. This is the most expensive agreement for the ship`s owner. Today, payment is usually made by transferring money to the employee`s salary account. For some employees, it may be more convenient to obtain cash payments. The employee may demand that the payment of the salary be made in cash when there is a particular need, see Section 4 of the Regulation on Employment Contracts and Pay Regulations, etc.2 35,000 non-marine non-domiciles are covered by collective agreements (CBA) negotiated with the NSF as the sole part of the staff or which are one of several cooperative unions.
As part of international cooperation with other CBSA unions, the FSN works through formalized partnerships with other seafarers` unions affiliated with the International Transport Workers` Federation (ITF), usually the national union of sailors from the home of the sailors concerned. These international CBAs generally concern sailors working on vessels flying flags of convenience (FOC) within the meaning of the ITF or vessels of the Norwegian International Register of Ships (SRI), where Norwegian law does not domicile sailors employed in local conditions (usually with much lower wages) from the seafarers` country of origin. In accordance with Section 4-1 of the Ship Labour Act, no agreement can be reached for the salary to be carried out from a later date than on the day the worker is commissioned.
