Stork offshore workers take strike action

1 June 2023

RMT Press Office:

Offshore workers are taking strike action today in a row over pay, rotas and other conditions.

RMT members working for Stork Technical Services are taking action to get a decent pay offer, changes to rotas and other outstanding conditions of work.
The strike started at 06:30 hours on Thursday 1 June and will last until 06:29 on Saturday 3 June.
Workers will also be on strike next week for 48 hours on Thursday 8 until 10 June.
Unions had been led to believe the employer was prepared to make an improved offer but nothing in writing emerged. 
RMT general secretary Mick Lynch said: "Our members have had enough of their employer not taking their pay claim and other outstanding issues seriously.
"In fact, the employer tried to use to anti-trade union laws to challenge our original strike ballot.
"They need to get round the negotiating table with RMT so we can come to a negotiated settlement.
"If not, our industrial campaign will continue, and more strike action will be put on if needed."
