Shell says it will stop paying Prelude FLNG workers as strike is extended

A spokesperson for Shell said that as of Monday, the company will no longer pay workers at its Prelude floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) facility offshore Western Australia as the workers will continue to be on strike.

According to the spokesperson, any workers that remained on site but were partaking in the industrial action would be reimbursed for the time periods that they were actually working.

This decision comes after the Offshore Alliance, which is a combination of the Maritime Union of Australia and Australian Workers’ Union, announced that the workers’ strike would be extended for another two weeks to August 4.

The strike first began on June 10, and it has continued on as workers have been demanding better pay. The Offshore Alliance announced it would be extending the strike after Shell refused to get back to bargaining with the representatives.

The industrial action has led to a number of work stoppages which have impacted Shell’s ability to moor carriers at the site to pick up LNG cargoes. Shell also announced last week that it needed to shut down the FLNG vessel and that it would be unable to supply cargoes until the strikes come to an end.
