US Refiners, Union Prepare For Possible Strike
From Fox Business
Contract negotiations continued for U.S. refiners and the United Steel Workers union Tuesday, with the looming possibility of a strike giving gasoline and diesel prices a slight bump.
The union has been pushing for stronger safety measures in the industry. The negotiations cover refineries comprising 6.24 million barrels a day of capacity, about a third of the national total. United Steelworkers could start striking at those facilities if an agreement for a new, three-year national contract isn”t reached by midnight Tuesday.
