The Central Workers Commission (CCT) of Petrogal has alerted the board to the "extreme urgency" of approving the investments planned for the Sines refinery.
The Central Workers Commission (CCT) of Petrogal, a refining company owned by Galp, has alerted the board to the “extreme urgency” of approving the investments planned for the Sines refinery, after the closure of the Matosinhos refinery.
In a statement issued Friday to report on the issues addressed at a meeting with Galp’s CEO, Andy Brown, in December, the CCT said that, in relation to the “delay of investments planned for the Sines refinery,” it warned not only of the “need to implement them,” but also of “the extreme urgency for them to be approved by the board and open up the range of operations for the country’s main industrial facility.
The CCT also insisted that the closure of the Matosinhos refinery was “a tremendous mistake”, which “must be corrected” with the reversal of the decision.
“We remind the workers who are at home awaiting a new placement, which we hope will be soon and the lab workers at the Porto refinery who have been relocated to Sines that this situation must be made definitive”.
Finally, the CCT raised the issue of dividend distribution to shareholders, considering that it is “draining hundreds of millions of euros on an annual basis”.
The committee also accused Andy Brown of being “the chairman who has best interpreted the media component of the office he holds, at the present time when disinformation is made by the fragmentation and a large amount of news being served up”
