Union bosses fired up over Wood Group pay offer


Trade union bosses yesterday accused Aberdeen energy service giant Wood Group of pushing North Sea workers to the verge of industrial action. Unite Scotland said offshore workers employed by Wood Group on Shell’s North Sea platforms were engaged in a consultation over a new offer on pay and benefits on the weekend. Tommy Campbell, a regional officer at Unite, said: “We are waiting to hear the result of consultations between the members of the workforce to see if the terms are acceptable. The results will be made known during the week and we will feed them back to Wood Group.
