UK union calls for talks about workers to be laid off by Vivergo Fuels

December 7, 2017 |

In the UK, urgent talks are being called for to seek assurances about job security, following the news that Hull-based biofuel producer Vivergo Fuels is to stop production.

Unite, the country’s largest union, represents repair and maintenance staff working for two firms TEI and Doosan Babcock operating on the £350 million site of the UK’s largest bioethanol producer.

Vivergo has expressed concern about continuing uncertainty over the transport department’s renewable transport fuels obligation and how this may affect the future of the E10 ‘green’ fuel made from organic material and which is designed to cut carbon emissions.

Unite understands that its currently approximately 30 members will now concentrate on the plant’s annual maintenance program, but the union wants to know about future employment prospects.
