Your Future, Your Views on the Major Issues Offshore

Unite is opening up a campaign to put a new, more solid floor under the feet of the offshore workforce. What we stand for is clear: A safer, healthier industry, supported by more balanced rotas and greater security of employment.

Throughout the course of the year we will also be examining the strengths and weaknesses of existing offshore agreements.

If we are to influence the shape of the future, we need to show that we have the power to effect meaningful change now.

You can be a spectator to a future that is written for you or an author of what is written.

A better future is possible, if you choose to fight for it.

Help us achieve this by taking five minutes to share your views today.
All and any individual responses will be held as strictly private & confidential to Unite and will at no time be shared with management/HR or any other 3rd party.
