Shell’s refusal to guarantee the future of its Geelong refinery has led Australian Workers Union Victorian secretary Ben Davis to warn that the company will axe jobs whether it finds a buyer for the asset or not, The Australian reports.

According to the newspaper, Mr Davis lashes governments for failing to do enough to save the up to 700 jobs he expects could be cut.

“We are expecting heavy losses regardless of the outcome of the sale. The question is when and how many, not if, jobs will be lost,” Mr Davis warned.

The Australian reports Shell refused to answer questions on the future of its refinery in Geelong, which was up for sale last year.
