Trade unions UNIA and SCIV have started organising work stoppages and protests in solidarity with 250 Tamoil workers who fear being laid off without a proper social plan. Tamoil Collombey announced earlier this year that is would be closing its refinery in Valois, expecting 250 redundancies. In response, the unions immediately started organising for a real social plan and instate temporary layoffs instead of the collective redundancy procedure that Tamoil initiated.
