SHAME ON RATCLIFFE!’ – shout Grangemouth refinery workers
Workers on the second day of their two-day strike over pensions at the giant Grangemouth oil refinery in Scotland yesterday remained defiant and determined to win.
Pickets, angry at plans of the refinery’s private equity owners Ineos to end final salary pensions for new entrants, shouted ‘shame on you Jim Ratcliffe’.
The strikers, members of the Unite (TGWU section) trade union made it clear that they see the company moving to end final salary pensions for existing employees as well.
One striker was asked: ‘Is there a lot of anger towards Jim Ratcliffe?’
He replied: ‘No there’s not anger towards him, not at all.
‘We’re in dispute with the man, not angry with him.’
Reminded that they were shouting ‘shame on you Jim Ratcliffe,’ the striker added, referring to the Ineos boss’s £2.3bn personal fortune: ‘He’s got that much money and all we want is a couple of million pounds to be put into our pension fund so we can’t lose out in the long term.’
