First Minister meets with Ineos and Unite
After meetings this evening with Ineos and Unite, First Minister Alex Salmond has called for Unite to swiftly confirm in writing their willingness to provide a guaranteed period of normal working to 31 December 2013 at Grangemouth.
He further called on INEOS to fulfil their parallel commitment to fire up the plant and return to normal production. This will provide the right atmosphere for the necessary consultations and negotiations to build a secure future for this crucial facility.
The First Minister said:
“From my discussions tonight with both parties in this dispute I believe both are sincerely committed to create a great future for Grangemouth. I believe that whilst there will be a long way to go, I believe that acceptance of my proposal tonight would be an essential first step in this process."
