Edward Davey statement on the decision by Unite to strike at the Grangemouth plant in Scotland.

Energy Secretary Edward Davey said:

“It’s very disappointing that Unite has decided to strike. I urge them to call it off and for both parties involved to enter into talks about the long term future of the Grangemouth plant and reach a fair, sustainable resolution.

“We have been working closely with the fuel industry and Scottish Government to put robust alternative supply routes in place in the case of a strike, which means that motorists can carry on as normal and other impacts will be kept to a minimum.”
