Dear Colleague,

IMPACT OF COVID 19 – OCG

With reference to the above, the Regional Organiser has attended talks with our sister unions as part of the Offshore Co-ordinating Group (OCG) having been invited by Oil & Gas UK to sit on their Pandemic Steering Group (PSG).

The meetings will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays and the group is dealing with matters arising from the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic and the impact it is having on the offshore industry such as health aspects, travel, aviation, non-essential work, best practice and furloughed workers.

Your National Executive Committee has noted the current position and it has instructed that the union is kept fully briefed on further meetings and I will keep you updated on all developments.

Yours sincerely


Mick Cash
General Secretary
