Offshore Alliance members at Chevron endorsed a recommendation suggested by the Fair Work Commission at a meeting of over 350 workers.
Offshore Alliance members from three Chevron gas facilities, Gorgon, Wheatstone Platform and Wheatstone Downstream met last night to consider a recommendation put to both Chevron and Offshore Alliance members yesterday morning by Commissioner Riordan.
The proposed enterprise agreements, which incorporate the Commissioner’s recommendations, which covers increased remuneration, job security, locked-in rosters, career progression and returning all employees to a 40 per cent roster.
The Offshore Alliance will now work with Chevron to finalise the drafting of the three agreements and members will soon cease current industrial action.
Offshore Alliance spokesperson and AWU WA Secretary Brad Gandy said Offshore Alliance members carefully considered Commissioner Riordan’s recommendation before endorsing it.
“Commissioner Riordan’s recommendation contains substantial improvements in terms and conditions of employment including increased remuneration, job security, locked-in rosters, career progression and returning all employees to a 40 per cent roster,” said Gandy.
The Offshore Alliance is an alliance between The Australian Workers’ Union (AWU) and the Maritime Union of Australia (MUA).
