AGL has announced that the majority of employees at the company’s Loy Yang A power station and mine in Victoria have approved a new enterprise agreement by secret ballot.
The proposed agreement will now be submitted to the Fair Work Commission for review, which AGL anticipates will occur in early July 2017.
AGL Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Andy Vesey, said, “We are pleased to have been able to negotiate a new enterprise agreement at AGL Loy Yang.
“The new enterprise agreement allows for salary increases while providing operational flexibilities that are essential to the long-term sustainability of the site in the context of the ongoing transformation of the electricity market.
“We are very pleased that this matter has now been resolved. This is a very good outcome for all parties; we now have certainty. We look forward to managing our operations at Loy Yang with a modern enterprise agreement.”
