The OCA ballot papers must be received by the Aberdeen office by noon on Wednesday 29th of July. It’s crucial that you return your ballot paper so that your voice is heard because it’s only our members who can decide the way forward. Your vote will determine the ballot outcome. It’s crucial that we have a strong mandate for the outcome of this ballot, so ensure that you return your vote ASAP. If you do not yet have a ballot paper, then please contact the Unite Aberdeen Office as soon as possible on 01224 645271
COTA have told us that they will not reinstate the second part of your negotiated two year pay deal. Despite our good intentions to resolve this dispute, COTA have made it clear that they are not prepared to re-enter negotiations. We will shortly be serving formal notice on each of the COTA employers of an industrial action ballot, we are awaiting approval from the legal department to ensure we are not open to legal challenge. This is nothing short of insulting to hard working members, who play a vital role in maintaining operations in the North Sea. Please continue to check our facebook and website for updates.
The consultative ballot for UKDCA Unite members must be returned by noon on Friday 31st July 2015. If you have not received a copy of the UKDCA response and a Unite consultative ballot paper, then please immediately contact the Aberdeen Office on 01224 645271. The UKDCA response to your union’s Pay and Conditions claim is very disappointing. Despite the fact that the Oil and Gas industry continues to be very profitable in the UK, there appears to be widespread redundancies in response to the downturn. Clearly this is not an appropriate response for those of us who want a sustainable future for the North Sea. If you have not received a copy of the UKDCA response to our Pay and Conditions claim or a Unite consultative ballot paper, then please immediately contact the Aberdeen Office on 01224 645271.
