The article announces the end of a strike at the Fos-Lavera oil and gas terminal in southern France after port workers voted to support a deal drawn up by union leaders and Gaz de France (GdF). Under the agreement, GdF has agreed to employ five full-time port employees for the hooking and unhooking of methane carriers at its new liquefied natural gas terminal. The dispute forced output at refineries and petrochemical plants in the area to be cut as vessels were blocked from docking.
