SHELL OIL SAYS NO AGREEMENT IN U.S. REFINERY TALKS

The face-to-face negotiations between lead U.S. oil company negotiator Shell Oil Co and United Steelworkers union (USW) has failed to reach an agreement that will seek to end U.S. refinery strike which entered its 20th day on Friday, reports indicate.

The strike, which is the largest refinery strike ever seen since 1980, currently has more than 5,000 workers from 11 plants and it is expected to set to get even bigger as workers from chemical plants as well as those from several refineries are set to join the strike.
Rumors about a tentative deal between Shell Oil (a U.S. ARM OF Royal Dutch) and the USW increased as the night went on due to the fact that they were being swapped through emails, text messages as well as phone calls among insiders in the oil industry.

"Discussions with the United Steelworkers concluded for this evening with no agreement in place," said Ray Fisher who is the spokesman for Shell.

In a message that was intended for the media as well as its members, the Steelworkers said that they were still in talks with Shell Oil Co.
There has been a series of meeting which have taken place between the two that is Shell Oil Co and the Steelworkers since the talks resumed on Wednesday morning following a week long break that was enforced so as to give Shell Oil Co the opportunity to reply to an information request as well as a counterproposal that was brought by the USW. On Thursday saw a seventh contract which was brought to the table by Shell being rejected by the union negotiators.

Many companies have hired temporary workers so as to ensure that their plans are running at nearly normal levels.
