Unite says BP Petrofac workers to support North Sea strikes over pay

March 22 (Reuters) - UK's Unite the union on Wednesday said that its members at BP Petrofac sites have voted to support a strike over pay at oil and gas facilities in the North Sea.

"The vote will see the BP Petrofac workers join 1,400 others in dispute with their employers meaning 1,500 offshore workers across the UK Continental Shelf (UKCS) could be on strike within weeks."

The BP Petrofac installations set to be hit by strike action include Andrew, Clair, Clair Ridge, ETAP, and the Glen Lyon floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) facility.

"BP is aware of the outcome of this ballot and we continue to liaise with the employing company, Petrofac," the company said.
