1,650 Offshore Contractors to Stage Industrial Action in Response to Job and Wage Concerns

Unite the Union, affirmed that approximately 1,650 contractors are set to partake in two successive 48-hour strikes. The dispute revolves around issues pertaining to employment, remuneration, and workplace conditions in the offshore industry.

These contractors, distributed across five organizations, are preparing for strikes scheduled to occur from June 1-3, and subsequently from June 8-10.

The impending labour action will involve a variety of roles including electrical, production and mechanical technicians, deck crew, scaffolders, crane operators, pipefitters, platers, and riggers. They are employed by firms such as Bilfinger UK Ltd., Stork Technical Services, and Sparrows Offshore Services.

These two-day strikes are expected to impact significant oil and gas operators such as Apache, bp, Harbour Energy, Enquest, Ithaca, Repsol, Shell, and TAQA. This strike action follows previous ones that took place in April and May.

Last week, Unite declared that approximately 600 Bilfinger contractors engaged in Ithaca, CNRI, and TAQA assets turned down the new pay proposals. The union confirmed that these workers will join the 48-hour halts, alongside 200 Bilfinger contractors employed on bp and Repsol assets.

About 650 Stork offshore members, and 200 offshore employees from Sparrows, will also join the strike action planned for June.
