Dave Hulse, GMB National Officer, explained: “We have served notice on the offshore contractors association (OCA) informing them that we intend to ballot members for industrial action.
“We have exhausted all procedures to try and reach an agreement including the involvement of Acas.
“Our members have played their part during the past couple of years, seeing thousands of job losses and also pay freezes.
“It’s time the OCA stopped playing games and came back to the table with a genuine commitment to improve the offer.
“Along with our colleagues from other unions our members message is quite clear; enough is enough.”
