Chevron accepts Australian labor tribunal's terms to end strike at LNG plants

(Reuters) - Chevron said on Thursday it has the accepted recommendations from Australia's labor regulator to end its dispute with unions at its liquefied natural gas (LNG) facilities in Western Australia.

The Fair Work Commission of Australia, which has the power to impose a settlement, "strongly recommended" parties accept its proposals to end work stoppages that began on Sept. 8 at the Gorgon and Wheatstone LNG operations.

The workers at the facilities, which account for nearly 7% of global LNG supply, are backed by the Offshore Alliance – that combines the Maritime Union of Australia and Australian Workers' Union.

Chevron had been negotiating with the workers for weeks alongside Australia's Woodside Energy, which managed to avert the strikes last month after reaching a deal.
