LONDON (Reuters) - A 24-hour strike at Total’s (TOTF.PA) British North Sea oil and gas platforms Alwyn, Elgin and Dunbar ended as planned at 0500 GMT, but the platforms will take 12 to 24 hours to resume full production, a union spokesman said on Tuesday.

Unite the Union, Britain’s largest labour union, has scheduled further 24-hour stoppages on Aug. 6 and 20 and 12-hour strikes will occur on July 30 and Aug. 13 if it is unable to reach agreement about new rotas with Total.
