Oil Workers Threaten to Expand Strike to Long Beach Port

Updated on

United Steelworkers members who help run crude terminals at a California port are threatening to join a national oil workers’ strike at U.S. refineries.

Union members at the Port of Long Beach are negotiating their own contract with Tesoro Logistics LP, said Dave Campbell, secretary-treasurer of the local representing the laborers. The group will meet with members of the International Longshore and Warehouse Union on Wednesday to discuss whether they would honor a walkout, he said.
