Trade Union officers and the Offshore Union Reps have recently attended direct talks with the employers in the Offshore Contractors Association.
A GMB spokesman said: “We are now awaiting the final written confirmation of a pay offer from the OCA employers within the next few days.
“Once we have formally received the OCA’s final offer we will communicate further with members.”
The union has been locked in a long-running dispute with the Offshore Contractors Association (OCA) – the umbrella body for offshore contractors – over pay and conditions.
Paul Atkinson, Chief Executive of the Aberdeen-based Offshore Contractors Association, said: “We are continuing to discuss our proposal with union officials.
“Our commitment is to working with them to reach an agreement that protects and sustains the North Sea industry and employment opportunities within the sector, now and in the long-term.”
