The Offshore Contractor’s Association (OCA) has made a fresh pay offer to workers after an initial rejection earlier this year.
Unite, RMT and the GMB unions will open consultative ballots next week.
It’s after Unite and RMT rejected an offer in March, with both unions saying they would engage in further talks.
They did not specify what parts of the deal were considered unacceptable, with the terms being “confidential”.
The organisation has produced a video explaining the offer to workers, following the initial rejection in March – see below.
The OCA said the deal includes an increase to base pay and addresses concerns around security of employment.
If accepted, the two-year deal will come into effect from August 1 this year until March 31 2020.
The OCA represents several employers, including Petrofac and Aker Offshore.
Unite, RMT and GMB’s consultative ballot will open on Monday and close at 12pm on 20 July.
Last year workers accepted a revised contract offer from the OCA, ending protracted talks which almost led to a strike.
Workers had been seeking better terms and conditions and had rejected a 2% increase to wages.
