Workers Vote to Halt Production at TotalEnergies’ Feyzin Refinery

Reuters, March 8, 2023

TotalEnergies ‍(TTEF.PA) workers took a majority vote to halt production at the Feyzin refinery close to Lyon, hardening their strike.

Striking workers had so far only blocked shipments at the site.

CGT representative Eric Sellini said the union was now negotiating the modalities on how to organise the shutdown with management.

Following a day of strikes and demonstrations on Tuesday, TotalEnergies' refinery deliveries were suspended on Wednesday, electricity output was reduced and train services remained disrupted as workers in key industries continued their action aimed at blocking the government's plan to delay the retirement age by two years to 64.
