PARIS (Reuters) – France’s CGT union workers voted to halt production at Total’s Grandpuits refinery as part of protests over the government pensions reform plan, a union official said on Monday.
“The decision has been taken to halt Grandpuits but with a slight majority. The management has asked for an hour of reflection,” the official said.
Halting production at PetroIneos’ 210,000 barrels-per-day Lavera oil refinery started on Sunday after a similar vote from the CGT union workers.
