All French Total oil refineries back to work Friday: company

29th October 2010, Comments 0 comments

All six French oil refineries operated by Total are expected to resume work Friday around midday, a spokesman for the group told AFP, as industrial action against pension reform wanes.

"All the sites should end their movement around the middle of the day," the spokesman told AFP, asking not to be named.

All 12 French refineries have been hit by industrial action in recent weeks, threatening to bring the country to a standstill, but strikers around the country have been getting back to work after parliament passed the pension reform law.
