Chevron, LNG workers fail to reach deal

Offshore Alliance said on Friday that it voted to reject Chevron Corporation's offer on what the Australian union alliance described as an attempt to "circumvent EBA [enterprise bargaining agreement] negotiations" between the two.

A deal would have prevented strikes at the company's liquefied natural gas (LNG) Gorgon and Wheatstone facilities, currently set to begin on September 7, giving the two sides less than a week to find common ground and resolve their issues.

"Chevron HR reckon that their dodgy non-union EA [enterprise agreement] proposal had 'closed the gap' but the Ballot results show that they are out of touch with OA members and haven't listened to a word spoken in their discussions with members, Reps and the Offshore Alliance," the OA wrote in a statement published on Facebook.
