Unite renews calls to ban Super Puma at STUC conference

Offshore union Unite has renewed calls to ban the Super Puma from the North Sea at a major conference in Aviemore.

Speaking at the STUC Conference, Unite’s Agnes Tolmie highlighted the group’s campaign against the aircraft with thousands of people lending their signature to the “back home safe” petition calling for operators not to use the model.

It follows a spate of fatal incidents involving the Super Puma, most recently in 2016 when an aircraft crashed in Norway in April 2016, killing all 13 people on board, including Iain Stuart from Laurencekirk.
