Unite offshore members vote to reject pay and conditions offer


Members of Scotland’s biggest offshore trade union have overwhelmingly voted to reject a no-change pay and conditions offer from their employers.


Members of Unite were asked to vote on a proposal from the Offshore Contractors Association (OCA), the lead representative body for offshore contractor companies.


The proposal would have seen no increase in pay and no change to the conditions of members.


Unite regional officer Tommy Campbell said: “Our members have made their views clear and we have informed the OCA of the result.


“We will now be looking to meet with the employers to get their reaction and to discuss how to take this matter forward. However, it is clear that the status quo is not an option.”


Unite, along with the GMB union, are seeking a wage increase for offshore members, along with improved sick pay and paid travel time.
