Unions representing offshore catering staff are going back to the negotiating table.
Unite the Union threatened strike action on rigs controlled by employers Aramark, Compass and Trinity earlier this year.
A ballot showed 80% of members working in the offshore catering industry are in favour of some form of industrial action including strike action over a pay dispute.
But, according to a letter being shared on social media, the subsequent industrial action ballot failed to gather the necessary numbers to cross the necessary threshold for a strike mandate.
Union representatives have now sought fresh talks with the Caterers Offshore Trade Association (COTA), who represent the employers.
Vic Fraser, regional organiser for Unite Scotland, said: “Unite confirmed to members that COTA accepted our request to meet with our negotiating committee in an attempt to resolve the current dispute and we will keep our members advised accordingly.”
COTA has been approached for comment.
