Chevron, USW to meet over California oil refinery strike

Negotiators from Chevron Corp and the United Steelworkers union (USW) are scheduled to meet to discuss a possible end to a strike at the company’s oil refinery in Richmond, California, according to spokespeople from both sides.

The talks will be the first face-to-face meeting in nearly two weeks between Chevron and USW Local 12-5. Some 500 workers at the 245,271 bpd refinery formally began the strike on March 21 after the two sides failed to reach agreement on a new labor contract.
