More members vote to join strike at oil refinery to increase risk to fuel production

GMB, the energy union, can today announce that more members have this morning voted to take industrial action at Fawley Oil Refinery.

Joining Bilfinger and Rhyal workers will be members employed by Altrad, who have voted to take action on the same issue of pay.

The union will now be issuing notice to Altrad, with the members then taking action from Wednesday 7 December, taking the total number of striking GMB members to over 100.

Bryan Hulley, GMB Regional Organiser said:

“If there was a risk to fuel production before, this will have certainly increased with more workers joining the picket lines next month.

“With multiple employers all having union members now taking strike action, it would make most sense for ExxonMobil to now intervene and help solve this dispute.

“Given that Joe Biden recently described them as making ‘more money than God’, thankfully this appears to be well within their gift.”
