GMB Trade Union - South Wales faces Flogas shortage

A week long strike by Flogas workers has led to shortages of Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG) shortages across South West Wales, GMB has said.

Flogas workers at the Llandarcy depot are in the midst five-day strike in a dispute over pay.

Up to 20 workers at gas giant’s depot in South Wales have downed tools after a below inflation pay offer.

After months of negotiation, workers voted to strike with a majority of more than 80 per cent.

The following day, Flogas announced redundancies at the site.

Peter Hill, GMB Regional Organiser, said:

“GMB members working for Flogas at Llandarcy are standing strong four days into their week-long strike at the site.

“The dispute is over this year’s pay deal.

“The majority of the depot is closed, causing disruption to the supply of LPG across South West Wales.”
