UK offshore union Unite is urging people to join its organization in an effort to combat pay cuts to workers.

 

It’s time to stand up for your future if you work offshore bosses pay up workers pay cut

 

The union took a step towards strike action on the UKCS earlier this year, as it served an official strike ballot notice to the Offshore Contractors Association (OCA) over a pay dispute.

“Our members are growing angry over the behaviour of the OCA employers,” Unite Regional Officer John Boland said in a statement sent to Rigzone in April.

“If we are going to settle this dispute, we need substance, not spin. Until we get genuine commitment from the OCA to improve their offer, we will continue to act on our members’ wishes, and give them the chance to have a say on possible industrial action, including strike action,” he added.

Unite’s OCA pay ballot runs until June 30.
