Crunch talks between the Offshore Contractors’ Association (OCA) and North Sea trade unions will continue later this month after yesterday’s meeting brought no resolution.
Discussions between the OCA and representatives from the GMB, Unite and RMT unions were aimed at averting strike action.
Crew are holding out for a 4% increase in basic pay.
OCA chief executive Paul Atkinson said: “We have taken part in useful and constructive talks today. We are committed to resolving this dispute as soon as possible.”
