The energy company expects final approval of the proposed new agreement, by the Fair Work Commission, will occur within weeks, after it immediately submits the agreement for immediately review.

AGL says the new EBA allows for salary increases, while it also provides operational flexibilities which are essential to the long-term sustainability of the site.

The company says the new EBA will close a significant period of uncertainty, while it will also give stakeholders confidence in the plant’s stable operations.
