Norwegian Union of Marine Engineers

The Norwegian Union of Marine Engineers (NUME) is a politically independent trade union. NUME has approximately 6,500 members working in maritime and technical professions in international and domestic shipping, oil and gas. NUMEs members represent sought-after expertise in industries where technology and sustainability take front seat.

In addition to the head office in Oslo, NUME also has a local office in Ålesund. The Union is organized into four geographic regions, North, Central, West and South-East. Members living abroad belong to the region of their employer’s headquarters in Norway, but they may choose to become a member of one of the other regions.

NUME’s goal is to ensure good working conditions and wages for its members. Anyone holding a Norwegian or equivalent foreign engineering certificate is entitled to membership.
