Asciano has reached agreement with the Maritime Union of Australia on a new enterprise agreement for container terminal workers across Australia.
The agreement follows 20 months of negotiations, and strike and industrial action that has cost Asciano more than $15 million.
Asciano owns the Patrick terminals and logistics business.
"We believe we have reached a positive outcome for all parties and are pleased to be in a position to put the agreement to our employees for vote and deliver the benefits of the agreement to our employees and customers," Patrick director Alistair Field said in a statement.
