TX: Exxon discusses new terms with union representing locked-out refinery workers

Source: Reuters

“Exxon Mobil Corp said on Saturday it and the United Steelworkers union, the union representing workers locked out of a Texas refinery, discussed terms of a proposed labor contract. Exxon said it provided clarifications to its latest proposal and rejected the union’s proposed changes to that offer, saying they would raise its costs. … It has been over five months since Exxon locked some 650 workers out at the Beaumont, Texas, plant, replacing them with temporary workers. The new proposal came at a time when at least 30% of workers represented by United Steelworkers union local 13-243 signed a petition to the U.S. National Labor Relations Board to force a vote on removing the union.” (10/09/21)
