Union considers ‘ridiculous’ offer of 1% a year salary increase for US refinery workers

Economic indicators flash early warning signal for India's recovery

“We didn’t work from home during the pandemic. We showed up and kept our facilities running,” the union said in the message, which was seen by Reuters. The message said the offer would give 30,000 U.S. refinery and chemical plant workers a 1% pay increase for each of three years under the contract being negotiated.

An increase in salary deal of 1% every year for laborers made by lead oil industry negotiator  Marathon Petroleum is “ridiculous,” the United Steelworkers union said in a message to individuals on Wednesday. Marathon Petroleum spokesperson Jamal Kheiry said the arrangements are covering different topics. Under the current agreement, which terminates Feb. 1, laborers got pay increments of 3.5% in every one of the agreement’s first two years and 4% in the third and last year. Refiners and chemical producers started recuperating in 2021 from huge misfortunes in 2020 when lockdowns and work-from-home policies to forestall the spread of COVID-19 drove down motor fuel demand.

“We are committed to bargaining in good faith and working toward a mutually satisfactory agreement,” Kheiry said.

Going into talks, the union was seeking “significant” pay increases and improvements in health insurance, according to people familiar with deliberations over the summer within the USW who were not authorized to speak publicly.
