New draft settlement for engineers
The Conciliation Board has presented the disputing parties with a draft settlement after yesterday’s prolonged talks failed to reach an agreement.
The Ministry of Finance and the Engineers’ Union have been locked in contract talks since 12 March regarding the renewal of four contracts, all of which expired on 1 October 2017:
- The contract with national transport company Strandfaraskip Landsins
- The contract with publicly appointed land-based engineers
- The contract with Vørn, the Faroese Fishery Inspection
- The contract with the crew on research vessel ‘Magnus Heinason’.
