Monroe Energy L.L.C. and United Steelworkers Local 10-234 Reach Tentative Agreement on Local Issues
Mar 7 15
Monroe Energy L.L.C. and United Steelworkers Local 10-234 announced that they had reached a tentative agreement on local issues, together with wages and benefits, involving 215 union members who work at Monroe's oil refinery in Trainer, Delaware County. Almost 7,000 steelworkers are on strike at 15 facilities around the nation as the United Steelworkers union negotiates a national contract. National negotiations are set for Monday on a 3-year pact affecting 30,000 steelworkers. The local agreement comprises a commitment for follow up talks after a resolution is reached in the national contract. That contract sets the pattern for local contracts. Local steelworkers technically could still join their brethren on strike if the national issues aren't resolved. The national contract expired a month ago. The contract ended March 1 at Monroe, which processes crude oil into refined products for Delta Airlines.
Delta Air Lines Inc. Reports Operating Results for February 2015
Mar 3 15
Delta Air Lines Inc. reported operating results for February 2015. The company said that key revenue measure fell 1.5% in February mostly because the strong dollar reduced the value of international ticket sales. The figure is revenue for each seat flown one mile. It rises when airlines fill more seats or charge higher average fares. Domestic operations and corporate accounts continued to generate strong revenue. Traffic rose 5.1%, as passengers flew 13.66 billion miles last month. Domestic traffic rose 7.2%, while international gained 1.9%. The company added 6.3% to its passenger-carrying capacity - usually by adding flights or using bigger planes - so there were more empty seats. The average flight was 80.3% full, down from 81.2% in February 2014. International service was added faster than the increase in traffic.
