Offshore strike ballot threat on hold for more talks

A potential strike ballot among offshore workers has been put on hold to allow for further talks.

The Unite and GMB unions have claimed there has not been enough consultation on moves by members of the Offshore Contractors Association (OCA) to change rota patterns in a bid to cut costs.

Talks were held with the OCA in Aberdeen on Wednesday.

In a statement, the unions said both sides would consider fresh proposals before fresh talks on 20 May.
