Industrial action by North Sea workers in a dispute over pay has been suspended to allow fresh talks.
Workers employed by the Wood Group on Shell platforms launched a series of strikes in protest at plans to cut pay.
Mick Cash, general secretary of the Rail, Maritime and Transport union, said in a message to members: “Following further discussions with the company I am pleased to announce that Wood Group have agreed to stop the implementation of the current proposals to allow fresh engagement and talks.
“As a result of this welcome development your National Executive Committee has decided to suspend all industrial action in this dispute to allow these discussions to take place. Therefore members must work normally.
“Talks will begin next week which we hope will bring about a satisfactory resolution and I will keep members informed as matters progress.”
