25 July 2016
Unite and RMT members employed by Woodgroup on Shell oil platforms in the Brent Field on the North Sea are to take strike action on July 26th – the first strike in a generation on the North Sea.
They will also be taking action short of strike action in response to attempts by Woodgroup to cut pay and allowances by 30%.
99.1% of those members voting in the ballot backed strike action, with 99.5% supporting action short of a strike. The turnout was 86.6%. This is a resounding endorsement and support of the action.
