“The plant is shut down until Tuesday. It is not operating. Tomorrow we will be putting a proposal to the workforce and we are giving them the weekend to decide and expect a response on Monday,” an Ineos spokeswoman said. “We’ll review with stakeholders what the workforce says on Tuesday and whether it re-opens depends on their response,” she added. A company statement had earlier said Grangemouth was financially distressed and that the industrial action called by the Unite union had inflicted significant further damage. INFRASTRUCTURE The plant plays a key role in Scotland’s economy. “This is a hugely important matter…whether it continues as a major part of Scotland’s infrastructure. It’s a hugely important industrial complex,” Alex Salmond, Scotland’s First Minister said in a BBC interview. Ineos said earlier this week it had begun winding down operations at Grangemouth, ahead of a planned strike by Unite union members over the treatment of a union representative. Unite called the strike off earlier on Wednesday. A source familiar with the situation said that it would take around three weeks to get the plant back to full operations, whenever a decision was made. Unite, in keeping with the bitter tone of the long-running dispute, accused Ineos of “economic vandalism”. “There is absolutely no reason for the site to remain shut – the company is holding Scotland to ransom,” said Unite regional secretary Pat Rafferty.
