Unite, GMB Receive Formal Pay Increase Offer from OCA

UK unions Unite and GMB have received a formal pay increase offer from the Offshore Contractors Association, according to a joint statement from the unions.

GMB and Unite had been negotiating a new payment deal over the past few days with the OCA.

The unions invoked a Dispute Resolution Procedure following the overwhelming rejection of a previous offer from the OCA, and subsequently prepared industrial action ballots in case the parties failed to make a deal.

“The status quo will be maintained until agreement is reached at any stage in the procedure or it is exhausted. Notwithstanding this, the signatory trade unions will prepare industrial action ballots, in case of failure to secure a resolution,” a Unite representative said in a statement at the end of December.

The full details of the new OCA offer will be communicated by post and electronically to all union members and a consultative ballot will take place over the next month to close at noon Mar. 20, Unite and GMB said in a joint statement.

Members of the OCA include AMEC Foster Wheeler plc, Aker Offshore Partner Ltd and Wood Group PSN Ltd.
