Sunoco refinery workers to strike if no deal: union

HOUSTON (Reuters) – Workers at Sunoco Inc’s (SUN.N) two refineries in Pennsylvania will go on strike at noon EST on Sunday if an agreement cannot be reached in line with a new national contract for refinery workers, the United Steelworkers union said on Friday.

“Sunoco is the only refiner left that hasn’t honored the national agreement,” said USW International Vice President Gary Beevers. “If that doesn’t happen by Sunday at noon, there will be a work stoppage Sunday at noon.”

Sunoco and the USW are negotiating a work contract for the company’s the 1,100 workers at the 335,000-barrel-per-day (bpd) Philadelphia refinery and 178,000 bpd Marcus Hook, Pennsylvania, refinery.

A Sunoco representative said the company has made an offer to the union “consistent with” the national agreement reached earlier this month between refiners and the USW.
