Offshore Alliance Members Offer to Work during Upcoming Industrial Action to Ensure Domestic Gas Supply

Offshore Alliance < 1 mins read

Offshore Alliance members at Chevron’s Wheatstone Downstream facility have made an offer to the company to perform work during upcoming notified industrial action.

The offer from Offshore Alliance members is in response to news that Chevron’s Domestic Gas Plant at Wheatstone has tripped and requires work to be performed to restart and return to full production capacity – work which may need to be performed during periods of upcoming protected industrial action.

The Offshore Alliance is an alliance between The Australian Workers’ Union (AWU) and the Maritime Union of Australia (MUA).

Offshore Alliance spokesperson, AWU WA Secretary Brad Gandy says that the Alliance supports the restoration and maintenance of domestic gas supply in Western Australia after the trip.

“Offshore Alliance members are engaging in protected industrial action in response to Chevron’s obstinacy in refusing to accept an industry standard enterprise agreement to cover these facilities.

“Members are not seeking to negatively impact users of gas in Western Australia by engaging in protected industrial action against Chevron, and have given this undertaking as a show of good faith.

“Chevron is dragging its feet in these negotiations and unfortunately, we have no choice but to be dragged along with it. We’re not seeking to make other businesses pay for Chevron’s recalcitrance and backwards industrial relations tactics.”
