Rmt Odia Agreement

It comes after workers turned down a series of offers prior to the deal that is negotiated every three years. The new agreement was reached after the call from the Acas arbitration service to support the negotiation process. The Offshore Industry Agreement (ODIA) dates back to the early 1980s. It`s the name of a three-year collective agreement between six scuba diving companies and the RMT union, in which the minimum wage, social benefits and health/injury insurance apply to North Sea diving personnel in the UK. This is after that the workers refused a series of offers prior to the agreement that is negotiated every three years. The new agreement was reached after the Acas arbitration body was invited to support the negotiation process. In recent years, boskalis has received a series of new diving orders in the British sector of the North Sea. The company was not in the ODIA with RMT and the wage rates on its ships were not covered by the standard negotiated for the UKCS. Salaries in this sector are very different and most divers are self-employed. Saturation divers working in the North Sea benefit from the ODIA/RMT agreement on rates of pay and can, as such, expect to earn more than GBP 1500 per day. In other parts, rates and conditions vary widely and sometimes depend heavily on nationality.

An overall average for a saturation diver working in offshore regions around the world in 2014 would be around $1200 to $1500 per day. The North Sea has controlled wage rates through the Offshore Diving Industry Agreement (ODIA), which dates back to the early 1980s. This is a three-year collective agreement between 7 dive companies and the RMT union, which regulates minimum rates for wages, allowances and health/injury insurance for UK staff in the North Sea. Many dive companies that are not part of the ODIA also work closely with the agreement and, as a result, the rates of pay for divers working on “sea diving projects” in UK waters are around £600 per day when negotiating with their clients.
