Norway labour union makes new proposal to oil firms in bid to end strike

OSLO, Oct 6 (Reuters) - Norway’s Lederne labour union has made a new proposal to oil companies in an attempt to resolve a dispute over wages and thus end a strike that has cut the country’s petroleum output by about 8%, the union told Reuters on Tuesday.

Six offshore oil and gas fields shut down on Monday as the Lederne labour union ramped up its strike, reducing output by around 330,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day, according to the Norwegian Oil and Gas Association (NOG).
