Workers at Loy Lang B Power Station are set to receive a 4.8% pay rise from next month.

A new 4-year enterprise agreement has been agreed to between power station employees and Alinta Energy, following a poll which saw 89% of the workforce voting in its favour.

In speaking about the motion, the CFMEU (Construction, Forestry, Maritime, Mining and Energy Union) says it's a sign the energy provider is willing to give their staff financial stability.

Alinta Energy is likely to present the agreement to the Fair Work Commission within a two weeks.
