BREAKING: Strikes back on cards as workers ’emphatically reject’ Total pay offer

The Elgin platform

Unite workers have “emphatically rejected” a pay offer from Total, which were aimed at averting further North Sea strikes.

95% of members working on the Elgin, Alwyn and Dunbar platforms rejected the pay offer in a ballot, with the union saying it was “way off from agreement”.

It followed talks between Unite and Total last week held by the Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service (ACAS), which had seen the suspension of strike action.

A further meeting is scheduled for Thursday and if it is not successful then further strikes will be held, according to Unite.

Total has been contacted for comment.
