Chevron LNG Workers in Australia Reaffirm Their Plan to Resume Strikes

Reuters, October 16, 2023

Workers at Chevron's (CVX.N) two liquefied natural gas (LNG) plants in Australia reaffirmed their plan to resume strikes as mediated talks continued on Monday, with the U.S. energy major saying that workers were being unreasonable.

Australia's Offshore Alliance union had called off strikes at Chevron's (CVX.N) facilities last month after the union and Chevron accepted proposals from the country's industrial arbitrator, resolving a fight that threatened to disrupt around 6% of the world's LNG supply.

Australia's Woodside Energy (WDS.AX) had also negotiated with workers in August and managed to avert strikes after reaching a deal.
