Your oil and gas union

Over the past 4 years, multinational oil and gas companies have set about driving down the wages, conditions, job security and occupational health and safety standards of workers in the hyrdocarbon sector.

The Offshore Alliance has brought together workers under the banners of the Maritime Union of Australia (MUA) and the Australian Workers Union (AWU) to build power and organise in the offshore sector. The Alliance gives workers the organisational and industrial strength to collectively end the race to the bottom and stop the continual decline of wages and conditions of employment.
