SYDNEY--Workers at two natural-gas facilities owned by Chevron in Australia have voted to restart industrial action, reigniting a dispute that has rattled global energy markets.

Offshore Alliance, a partnership between two local unions, said the decision was taken at mass meetings of members on Thursday and Friday. It alleged Chevron had attempted to walk back on an agreement recommended by Australia's workplace arbiter around two weeks ago.

Australia rivals Qatar as the world's largest exporter of liquefied natural gas. Chevron's Gorgon and Wheatstone liquefied-natural-gas facilities in Australia, at the center of the labor dispute, account for roughly 7% of global supply.
