The Examiner has confirmed through multiple sources that the USW has recommended approval of an agreement with Shell Oil on contract negotiations. Although there was a national agreement, each local union must ratify the agreement.
The local USW 13-243 reached its decision Thursday, Feb. 2, 2012, during a 1:30 p.m. meeting. There is a meeting scheduled for an overall vote of members Tuesday Feb. 7 at the Union Hall located at 2490 S. 11th Street at 6:30 p.m.
The Examiner will be in attendance at the meeting and will update this story as more information becomes available.
