Chevron: Gorgon and Wheatstone LNG workers back new labor deals

Chevron’s workers at the Gorgon and Wheatstone LNG export terminals in Western Australia have voted in favor of new labor agreements.

The workers voted during the weekend on all three enterprise agreements, including for the Wheatstone and Gorgon downstream facilities and the Wheatstone offshore platform.

“Chevron Australia is pleased to confirm the proposed enterprise agreements for frontline field operations employees at our Gorgon and Wheatstone gas facilities have been supported by the majority of employees in a vote,” a Chevron spokesperson told LNG Prime on Monday.

Moreover, the spokesperson said that the agreements “achieve sustainable, market competitive outcomes that are in the interests of our employees and the company.”

“Following the vote, we will proceed to have the agreements approved by the Fair Work Commission,” the spokesperson said.

Prior to these votes, Chevron’s workers agreed on October 18 to suspend industrial action planned for October 19.

The Offshore Alliance, which includes the Maritime Union of Australia and Australian Workers’ Union, said that its members on the Chevron facilities voted 94 percent in support of an in-principle agreement to suspend protected industrial action.

The Gorgon LNG plant on Barrow Island has a production capacity of some 15.5 mtpa while. The Wheatstone LNG plant near Onslow has a capacity of about 8.9 mtpa.
