Energy giant Chevron and unions have struck a deal to end strikes at two large liquefied natural gas, LNG, facilities in Australia.

Workers accepted a proposed agreement put forward by the country’s labour regulator, said the Offshore Alliance, which is a grouping of two unions.

The company said the current industrial action has been suspended.

Strikes had been taking place at the Gorgon and Wheatstone facilities over pay and conditions since September 8, 2023.

Brad Gandy, a spokesperson for the Offshore Alliance said in a statement, that at a late night mass meeting members endorsed the latest offer which incorporates the Fair Work Commission’s recommendations.

Australia’s industrial arbitrator, the Fair Work Commission, had hosted mediation negotiations between the company and union representatives.

Mr Gandy added that the Offshore Alliance will now work with Chevron to finalise the drafting of the agreement and members will soon cease current industrial action.

A spokesperson for Chevron Australia told the BBC the agreement “resolves the issues that remained outstanding following conciliation sessions this week.”
