Wood Group and unions fail to reach agreement amid strike action

Industrial action is still expected to go-ahead after talks failed to resolve a dispute between unions and Wood Group.

More than 300 members of Unite and the RMT are expected to take industrial action next Tuesday on Shell assets across the North Sea.

It comes amid dispute over pay and conditions.

Workers are expected to begin an overtime ban on Monday.

They are also set to hold a 24-hour strike the following day.

Workers have claimed they are facing up to 30% cuts which has been denied by Wood Group.

A Wood Group spokeswoman said:”Safeguarding these positions for our employees in the North Sea, against the backdrop of an extremely challenging climate for the sector, has always been and remains our focus.

“We are strongly committed to reaching a resolution which achieves this mutual goal, and our proactive engagement continued today with further productive discussions with the unions, with this as our clear aim.

“Our employees’ safety and wellbeing remains our top priority and our commitment is to ensuring it is not compromised during industrial action.”

Wood Group signed a new three-year contract extension with Shell earlier this year.

One worker spoke to Energy Voice about his reasons for taking strike action. Read more here.
