Strike hits French Reichstett refinery-union

LONDON, March 10 (Reuters) – Workers on strike at Petroplus’ (PPHN.VX) Reichstett refinery in France blocked product deliveries from the plant, a Union Départementale des Syndicats Force Ouvrière du Bas-Rhin spokeswoman told Reuters on Thursday.

The strike would continue until acceptable conditions were offered to workers ahead of the closure of the 85,000 barrels-per-day refinery scheduled for the end of the month, the union said.

The Swiss-based oil refiner said it planned to convert the Reichstett refinery to a terminal after failing to find a buyer.
