North Sea strike: Wood Group and unions holding ‘constructive’ talks

Post Thumbnail

Union chiefs are continuing ‘constructive’ talks with Wood Group as both sides continue to look for a resolution to the current North Sea strike dispute.

Hundreds of workers downed tools last month on a number of planned strike action days after disagreement between workers and the firm about changes to pay and conditions.

Earlier this month further industrial action across seven of Shell’s North Sea assets were suspended while both sides went back to the negotiating table.

Wood Group staff had previously said the changes to contracts would have a ‘significant’ impact on their income.

At the time, Wood Group said the changes it wished to implement were necessary in the changing oil price environment.

Since 2014, the company has had to let around 10,000 staff members go in a bid to make cost savings.

A joint statement from both sides said: “Wood Group and the Unite and RMT unions continue to hold constructive discussions.”

Last week it was revealed two days of positive talks had taken place.

The programme of industrial action affected the Brent Alpha, Brent Bravo, Brent Charlie, Curlew, Gannet, Nelson and Shearwater platforms.

A series of three-hour stoppages were held in the following days and a 48-hour stoppage was planned for the end of last week.
