Offshore services supplier Technip has signalled it is seeking to make onboard job cuts due to cold stacking two vessels.
Most of the workers affected will be day rate and agency workers on the Apache II and G1200 vessels, Nautilus understands. Specific numbers have not yet been provided by the company.
However, six permanent officer roles will also be cut.
Technip has entered collective consultation on those six job cuts despite there being no legal requirement to do so. The Union is supportive of that move, Nautilus strategic organiser Lee Moon said.
The Union is considering all options to avoid further job losses including concessions such as a pay freeze and liquidation of leave for crew members not affected by the redundancies.
