Unite the Union: OCA Pay Ballot 2017 update: 01 July


Pay Ballot Heading

Unite the Union Regional Officer, Tommy Campbell,

“An overwhelming majority of Unite offshore workers voted for strike action but there is no legal mandate for the action.”

“This is because the Tory anti-union laws required a 50% threshold of all union members to be met.

“Although there has been a democratic engagement with our union members over the past few months we will be unable to organise any strike action.

“We will now continue with our discussions with other unions – GMB and RMT – about how best to progress the ongoing concerns of offshore workers in light of the ballot result.”
