Workers at LyondellBasell Industries NV’s Berre refinery have voted to prolong a strike until Oct. 10, as per Bloomberg. Workers went on strike after the company announced closure on Sept. 27 and halted processing units, which have not been restarted. The plant is one of four near Marseille. After failing to find a buyer, LyondellBasell is preparing to shut the plant for good. This is the third closure announced in France in 18 months as refiners seek to cut capacity because of a drop in profits and declining demand for fuels. Talks between management and unions will begin in Paris.
