UK union to ballot 2,500 offshore oil workers for strike

LONDON (Reuters) - Offshore oil services workers will be balloted for potential strike action after they rejected a pay increase offer by the Offshore Contractors Association (OCA), Britain’s union Unite said on Friday.

Unite said it has 2,500 members covered by the OCA and the decision would affect 106 North Sea oil platforms.
