Dear Colleague,

Rates of Pay & Conditions of Service 2016 - COTA

I write to inform you that here have been further developments in the matter of your pay. Despite the best efforts of the negotiating team, the Signatories to the agreement are refusing to budge from their position of not improving the offer which has been rejected. The matter has been considered by your union’s National Executive Committee (NEC) and it has instructed that I prepare a ballot matrix for the purpose of carrying out a ballot for industrial action in the very near future.

As a matter of great urgency we require you and your colleagues working for COTA companies in the offshore sector to supply the following information:-
We need you to confirm the following details:-
•    Name
•    Installation
•    Employer
•    Current Address Details
•    Email and mobile telephone number
•    Job Title/Trade
•    Membership Number or National Insurance Number (if known)

Please report any changes to either the Membership department at RMT Head Office on 0207 387 4771 or you can contact our Regional Office in Aberdeen on 01224 210118/ 01224 582688. Alternatively you can email the OILC branch secretary oilc.rmt.secretary@gmail.com or you can contact the RMT National Helpline on 0800 376 3706 or email info@rmt.org.uk
If you no longer work for a COTA company, have been made redundant or have left the industry, I would be most obliged if you could confirm the change to your circumstances.

Yours sincerely
Mick Cash
General Secretary
