Oil workers rallied at RMT union headquarters in Aberdeen last week. The rally was for offshore safety after four workers died in a helicopter crash off Shetland earlier this month.
RMT members joined reps from a Norwegian offshore trade union, Industri Energi, and relatives of the 16 men killed in a 2009 helicopter crash.
The union called off a protest at CHC helicopter operator’s Aberdeen base after the rig owners allowed the union access to workers offshore. Many expressed concern at the state of health and safety.
