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.
