Unite Offshore is undertaking a large exercise of membership and offshore worker engagement. Throughout the first few months of 2019, in addition to ongoing member support and issue specific campaigning, we are seeking to support a wide ranging and far reaching debate about what needs to change for members and workers employed on the UKCS.
The outcomes of this debate will inform the development of a Unite Offshore campaigning agenda in the UK Offshore Oil & Gas Industry.
Your Union, Your Voice. There will be multiple lines of communication to support this debate. However, a critical dimension to this will be report backs from Tea shack meetings held by members and workers while you are offshore.
