UK needs a plan and not bans for better energy independence
GMB, the energy union, has responded to reports the Grangemouth refinery is to close
Gary Smith, GMB General Secretary, said:
“This is a deeply worrying time for the future of the workers and communities dependent on Grangemouth.
"The intention to transition from domestic production to a fuel import terminal poses serious questions about the UK's energy security. It will also cause real concern for the wider UK energy and manufacturing sectors.
"Time and again, GMB has said the UK needs a plan and not bans for better energy independence and prosperity.
“Today’s announcement should be a huge wake up call to policymakers across the political spectrum.”
