Workers at joint BP project involved in early morning wildcat action against job losses
In Saltend, Hull, 400 construction workers blockaded the entrance to a biofuel plant from 6.00am in response to 15 redundancies and management reneging on a redundancy package. Traffic was brought to a standstill in the surrounding East Hull and Holderness areas before being forced to turn back. The blockade came to a close at 9.30am.
There are fears as the plant grows nearer to completition that jobs will be thinned out, with no alternative work. A vote has been passed for further action.
