Shell changes to North Sea rotas welcomed by union Unite

Sept 18 (Reuters) -

* The Unite union in Scotland on Tuesday welcomed a decision by Shell to move to two weeks offshore and three weeks onshore schedules for workers in the British North Sea

* Shell will switch to a less tiring rota system for its offshore workers in the North Sea, it said on Tuesday, as rival Total has faced strike action over plans to have workers spend more days offshore

* The agreement will include performance pay to offset reductions in any take-home income as a result of shift changes, the union said in a statement

* Workers at three of Total’s offshore platforms in the North Sea have held strikes over the group’s plans to introduce a rota that would require them to stay offshore for three weeks and onshore for three weeks (Reporting by Sumita Layek in Bengaluru; editing by Jason Neely)
