John Boland, Unite regional officer said:
“We can confirm that the strike action on Alwyn, Dunbar and Elgin platforms has gone ahead as planned. Production has been stopped and the wells have been shut.
“Although no further talks are planned at present we would urge the company to come back to us with an improved offer to get our members back to work and the wells up and running again.”
