French workers vote to halt production at Total's Grandpuits refinery - union

PARIS, Dec 23 (Reuters) - France’s CGT union workers voted to halt production at Total’s Grandpuits refinery as part of protests over the government pensions reform plan, a union official said on Monday.

“The decision has been taken to halt Grandpuits but with a slight majority. The management has asked for an hour of reflection,” the official said.

Halting production at PetroIneos’ 210,000 barrels-per-day Lavera oil refinery started on Sunday after a similar vote from the CGT union workers. (Reporting by Bate Felix; Writing by Benoit Van Overstraeten; Editing by Edmund Blair)
