Managers cleared of strike claims.

AN INQUIRY into the recent outbreak of wildcat strikes over the foreign workers' row has found no evidence that employers broke the law.

The conciliation service, Acas, said employers at an oil refinery in North Lincolnshire acted in accordance with collective agreements and there was no evidence of unlawful recruitment practices.

But Acas also found there was "tension" around the application of the European Posted Workers Directive.

The dispute flared after UK workers claimed they were denied the chance to apply for jobs at the Lindsey refinery.

Business Secretary Lord Mandelson said: "Acas confirms neither UK nor European law was broken at Lindsey, and that European workers were covered by the industry's collective agreement."
