For the past week contract workers have been on unofficial strike at the Lindsey Total oil refinery in Lincolnshire. The workers are working on the desulphurisation plant there. Solidarity action had been building up all over the country with more than 2,000 workers staging stoppages at 10 other sites.

Now Total has escalated the confrontation by sacking 900 workers, resorting to the worst traditions of the boss class.
