Motiva Receives Notice of Strike
Motiva Enterprises LLC received notice from the USW that a strike will begin at its Port Arthur Refinery when the existing labor contract expired at midnight on February 20, 2015. The company also received notice that a strike will begin at its Norco and Convent, Louisiana refineries when their existing labor contracts expire on February 21, 2015.
The company has activated its contingency plans to ensure a safe and orderly handover of operations at all three sites from union-represented employees to fully trained and qualified Motiva employees, who will safely operate the refineries.
Motiva is disappointed that a mutually satisfactory agreement was unable to be reached at the national bargaining table. The company is committed to maintaining safe operations as part of the normal course of business and to providing quality products to our customers who depend upon us.
