Strike action by offshore drilling workers has been called off as they voted to accept a 10% pay offer.
Sharon Graham General Secretary of the Trade Union Unite said:
“By standing together, Unite’s members covered by UKDCA have an improved offer that they are willing to accept. They showed collective strength and resilience to fight for better pay which they achieved so the planned strikes are now off. Unite is determined to achieve improved pay, terms and conditions for our members and this shows their fight was worth it.”
Over 450 offshore drilling and drilling maintenance workers covered by the United Kingdom Drilling Contractors Association (UKDCA) have accepted an improved offer of 10% on their rates of pay back dated to 1st June 2022.
