  1. SABIC chemical workers strike at plant in Netherlands

    On February 6, workers at Saudi Basic Industries Corp (SABIC) Europe Chemicals’ Netherlands based Geleen plant ended a strike. According to the company, the strike began on January 31, “due to the proactive measure taken by the union workforce as a consequence of no finalised agreement regarding work conditions”.

    The workers are members of the De Unie trade union and the strike is reportedly centred on the issue of support and payments to staff who may be laid off in the future.

    SABIC is the largest petrochemical maker in the world and operates two naphtha crackers and a number of polymerization plants at Geleen. These produce 1.25 million tons of ethylene, 940,000 tons of polyethylene, 725,000 tons of propylene and 620,000 tons of polypropylene per annum.
