Total decides to talk

If Obama has taught the political landscape one thing, it is that communication is crucial in achieving results. Hence, it is good news that Total have agreed to talk to the laid off workers at Lindsey. Though it seems the decision is not altruistic;

“Total said repeated problems had delayed its new hydrosulphurisation project at Lindsey by six months, adding as much as €100m (£85m) to the cost. “Further cost overruns will jeopardise the future viability of this important inward investment into the UK,” the company said.”

But demands need to be asserted on the ins and outs of subcontractor rights and how they are enforced, because Total will not take these rights lying down.
