Offshore Co-ordinating Group


The Offshore Coordinating Group of offshore unions (UNITE, RMT, GMB, Nautilus International and BALPA) was launched in February 2016.

The aims and objectives of the Group are to:

• Co-ordinate the recruitment and organisation of all employees in the offshore oil and gas industries and thereafter to seek recognition on their behalf.

• Campaign to improve both the quality and security of employment in the offshore sector and the health, safety and wellbeing of all offshore workers.

• Organise and pursue effective campaigns on issues identified by the Group in the interests of the offshore workforce.

• Organise and articulate the collective trade union voice in strategic discussions with Government at all levels, regulators and employer organisations.
