Largest US Strike

The United Steelworkers Union has launched the biggest walkout in the US since 1980, shortly after the USW failed to reach an agreement on their salaries, safety concerns, and a labor contract with major oil companies, including Royal Dutch Shell. The UNW represents employees at more than 200 US oil refineries, terminals, pipelines and chemical plants, producing some 10% of the country’s fuel, BBC reported.
