Strikers return to work at Phillips 66ís Humber refinery

14 November, 2014

Striking workers at Phillips 66ís Humber refinery have returned to work after three days of industrial action.

About 450 contract workers went on strike on Monday claiming they had safety concerns, but Phillips 66 said the operation of the plant has not been affected by the action.

On Wednesday Phillips 66 said : ďThe workers have cited concerns over safety, which is the Humber Refineryís number one priority. Following a recent vapour release on the 5th November, refinery management stopped all work for two hours and met face-to-face with every on-site contract company and their staffs to communicate what occurred and to reinforce Phillips 66ís commitment to safe operations.Ē

It said the vapour release occurred during routine maintenance and its emergency response team and an ambulance were called. As a precaution two contractors were taken to the local county hospital and they were later released to return to work.

When a major car manufacturer like Ford predicts that sales of its electrified cars will outnumber petrol and diesel models by 2022, does that ring alarm bells about the possible speed of change for forecourts?
