Tentative Agreement Reached

On Thursday, September 5th at approximately 8:00 PM Central time, your Strategic Bargaining Committee reached tentative agreement on all articles of our Collective Bargaining Agreement. We are now in the process of presenting the changes to the members so everyone can make an informed decision on the ratification of this new contract. We are doing this at live meetings with as many members as we can reach at our Gulf of Mexico bases, as well as providing the presentation and full CBA with highlighted changes in our members’ area of this website.

This new contract contains many improvements from our previous contract that you, the members have asked for as well as protecting your current rights and benefits. Therefore, both the OPEIU International and your OPEIU Local 407 Bargaining Committee strongly recommend ratification of this contract.

Voting will begin on Friday, September 20th at 2:00 PM Central time and will continue until Friday, September 27th at 2:00 PM Central time.
