Rates of Pay & Conditions of Service 2017 – OCA

Our Ref: SH/0001/OCA

20th September 2017

Dear Colleague,

Rates of Pay & Conditions of Service 2017 – OCA

Further to my letter dated 16th August 2017, the referendum regarding the above has concluded and this matter has been considered by the National Executive Committee, which has noted the referendum result and that members have reluctantly voted to accept the terms of the offer.

In line with the NEC decision, the OCA has been informed of our acceptance of the offer and I have asked that the increase and any backdated monies is paid to you and your colleagues at the earliest opportunity.

The ‘root and branch’ review of the current Offshore Contractors Partnership Agreement is ongoing, with RMT seeking to become a fully recognised participant and signatory to a new, revised agreement. Your Regional Organiser is attending regular meetings in this respect and I will you advised of all further developments.

Yours sincerely
Mick Cash
General Secretary
