Employees of oil company Total SA have occupied a management building in Flanders. The move is a protest against the continued idling of the production plant. Workers have called for a 48-hour strike on Wednesday to protest Total's cutting production. The unions have set a deadline of February 15th to restart production, but Total has pushed to the deadline for their decision on the plant's fate from February 1st to the end of June. Total has halted production due to decreased demand from European markets and depressed refining margins. The company has stated that if it does close the plant, all employees are guaranteed a job somewhere else within the company.
