Negotiation of Wages and Conditions

The Offshore Alliance Unions negotiate workplace enterprise agreements, which outline your wages and conditions of employment. Employment conditions include annual leave, sick leave, long service leave, redundancy, ordinary working hours, overtime, break times, and superannuation.

Recovery of Underpayment of Wages and Superannuation

Your wages and conditions are determined by the National Employment Standards, the mining awards, the workplace’s enterprise agreements, and your contract of employment. This stuff can be complicated but if you have been underpaid the Offshore Alliance will make sure members receive their lawful entitlements.

Advice on WHS, Industrial and Workers’ Compensation Issues

Members have access to assistance on these matters through the OA Unions and our partnered Law Firms. If you need help with a workers’ compensation matter, please contact your Organiser. This is a no-cost service for members.

Fighting Unfair Dismissals

Unfair dismissals often happen with little notice and can be devastating to the lives of workers and their families. Unfair dismissal applications must be lodged within 21 days to the Fair Work Commission (FWC). So, if you think you have been unfairly dismissed, or are unsure, please contact your Organiser as soon as possible for your case to be reviewed.

Journey Cover
