Curtis Island workers say Yes to new proposal by Bechtel

Union workers protesting on the Curtis Island LNG projects approved a labor agreement proposed by Bechtel with a 54% voters saying yes.

Bechtel made a statement today saying the new revised offer included a 13% increase in pay and extra daily allowances, reports Bloomberg.
