All French refineries back to work after protests: unions

29th October 2010, Comments 0 comments

Striking workers at all 12 French oil refineries have voted to resume work, unions said Friday, after two weeks of industrial action to protest pension reform almost brought the country to a halt.

The refinery at Donges in the northwest of the country was the last facility to vote to get back to work, while the CGT union announced that the key oil terminal at Fos-Lavera near Marseille would also start working again.
