North Sea workers reject latest pay offer from contractors

A North Sea pay offer by the Offshore Contractors Association has been rejected by oil workers in the RMT and UNITE trade unions.

The association said it was ‘disappointed’ with the ballot results, but would keep working with unions in a bid to achieve a viable settlement.

Trade unions are now expected to hold further discussions with the OCA, which represents a number of employers, including Petrofac and Aker Offshore.

The unions could then move to a consultative ballot on taking industrial action if no agreement is struck.
