CNR International going 3 off, 3 on

CNR International (UK) Limited has confirmed that it will shortly start a consultation process with its offshore employees in relation to a proposed change to North Sea offshore personnel rotation.

The company is proposing to implement an equal time rota for all offshore staff and contract personnel which will comprise three weeks of offshore working followed by a three week leave break.

A spokesperson for the company commented: “Like all operators in the North Sea, CNR International is looking at ways in which we can improve the efficiency and cost effectiveness of our business, in order that we remain competitive and viable in the basin in the longer term, whilst maintaining our focus on safety, which is a core value.

“The proposed change to our offshore rota is one of several initiatives being undertaken to address this threat. A consultation process with our offshore workforce will shortly commence, where employees will be given the fullest opportunity to express their views.”

CNR’s decision is in line with the one made by Talisman Sinopec that also announced similar plans.

However, these decisions do not sit well with the unions. As previously reported, GMB Scotland is considering possible strike action due to “unilateral changes to working conditions”.

GMB Scotland said: “GMB believes that any changes to rotas could have a serious impact on the safety of those working offshore and we urge the companies to rethink the proposals.”
