Grangemouth petrochemical plant saved from closure
It marks a lucky escape as the site has been shut down since last week and looked set to close for good after Unite rejected INEOS’ survival plan on Monday.
It will now reopen after the union agreed not to strike for three years and accepted the survival plan. It means workers will also have their pay frozen for three years and will see their pensions change from a final salary to a defined benefits scheme.

The adjacent refinery, which has also been shutdown since last week, will be restarted as well.
