Offshore catering pay deal accepted

A deal to give offshore caterers a pay rise has been struck.

The Caterers Offshore Trade Association (Cota) said members of Unite and RMT unions had accepted a pay offer.

It followed an earlier consultative ballot.

Cota said it would see annual salaries and day rates go up, as well as increasing meal allowance dinner element benefits.
