Workers walk off job at GLNG’s Curtis Island site

A large group of workers have walked off their jobs at GLNG’s Curtis Island site.

An anonymous source said hundreds of workers attended a meeting before boarding a ferry at 10:30am yesterday and leaving the island.

While details of the walk-off could not be confirmed, a dispute over ferry times and travel arrangements is said to be behind ongoing tensions between unions and Bechtel, Gladstone Observer reported.

Bechtel Gladstone general manager Kevin Berg said:

"The site leadership has met with employees and we are working to establish the best possible solution. We will continue to monitor our travel program in order to minimize impacts as much as possible."
