France -GDF Suez workers blocked liquefied natural gas terminals in pay dispute -April 23, 2012

GDF Suez workers have blocked three liquefied natural gas terminals in Bouches-du-Rhone. Trade union CGT reported that following GDF’s €8,3 billion take over of Britain’s International Power, 220 GDF Suez employees signed a letter to the company’s management demanding a fairer distribution of profits. As liquefied natural gas accounts for about one third of France’s gas supply, any prolongation of the strike was expected to lead to shortages. On Monday 23 April workers approved an outline agreement with GDF Suez's Elengy unit calling for a better sharing out of profits.
