LONDON (Reuters) – A 24-hour strike at three of Total’s <TOTF.PA> British offshore oil and gas platforms started at 0500 GMT on Monday, as planned, a representative from Unite the Union said.

Unite’s regional officer Wullie Wallace said that talks were planned for Thursday between its members and Total to discuss pay and a new rota scheme.

The workers began a series of 24-hour and 12-hour strikes on July 23. The next 24-hour strike is planned for Aug. 20 and the next 12-hour strike at Aug. 13. The affected platforms are Alwyn, Elgin and Dunbar.
