Shell Oil Co. Wins Lawsuit that Alleged a Man Died After Years of Working at a Gas Station and Being Exposed to Benzene
Jun 30 15
Shell Oil Co. has won a lawsuit that alleged a man died after years of working at a gas station and being exposed to benzene. The case, Burst, et al v. Shell Oil Co., was dismissed in U.S. District Court on June 29, 2015 in New Orleans. It was set for trial beginning next week before Senior District Judge Sarah Vance. The lawsuit involved the alleged claims of a widow, Yolande Burst, who said her husband's exposure to benzene in gasoline while working at gas stations from 1958 to 1971 caused his acute myelogenous leukemia, or AML. Defendants were Shell and Chevron for Texaco and Gulf, both of which are now owned by Chevron. Vance dismissed the case through a summary judgment order following the court's ruling earlier this month throwing out the plaintiff's expert on causation. The court deemed the physician's opinion as unreliable, the summary judgment reads. Vance dismissed the case because the plaintiff could not prove causation with the expert's testimony inadmissible.

USW Reaches Tentative Deal with Shell Oil
Mar 12 15
The United Steelworkers or USW announced that it has reached a tentative agreement on a new four-year contract with Shell Oil as a pattern agreement for the rest of the industry. The agreement accomplishes the major goals as directed by the USW's oil conference in October of last year, and has been approved by union's lead negotiators and National Oil Bargaining Policy (NOBP) Committee. The tentative agreement calls for yearly wages increases as well as maintaining the current health care plan cost-sharing ratio. The next step in the bargaining process is for the company to put the terms of the settlement agreement on all of the Shell and Motiva bargaining tables. USW's expectation is that other employers will offer the same terms at their local bargaining tables. The local unions will then review the employers' proposals with Vice President Beevers. Approved settlement agreements are then submitted to the local membership for explanation and ratification votes.
