Union says U.S. refinery strike widened; cites unfair labor practices

Yahoo! National News - Sun, 02/08/2015 - 09:16

Members of the United Steel Workers union picket the Tesoro refinery in Carson, CaliforniaThe United Steelworkers union said on Saturday the strike by U.S. refinery workers is expanding to two more plants early on Sunday due to unfair labor practices by oil companies. Walk-outs at BP Plc's Whiting, Indiana, refinery and the company's joint-venture refinery with Husky Energy in Toledo, Ohio, shortly after 12 a.m. local time on Sunday would bring the number of plants with striking hourly workers to 11, including nine refineries accounting for 13 percent of U.S. refining capacity. BP said on Friday it had received notice of the walk-outs at the two refineries, but the Steelworkers had said little about them until Saturday. "We regret that we have been unable to reach a mutually satisfactory agreement with the USW prior to contract expiration," said Shell spokesman Ray Fisher.


Revel Casino sale in jeopardy after U.S. court order

Yahoo! National News - Sun, 02/08/2015 - 08:59

People walk outside the Revel Casino Hotel in Atlantic CityThe planned sale of the shuttered Revel Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey, to a Florida developer has been thrown into jeopardy following a decision by a U.S. federal appeals court that would change the terms of the transaction, according to court documents. The sale to Florida developer Glen Straub, who bought Revel in bankruptcy court for $95.4 million, had been expected to be completed on Saturday. The decision by the Third U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Court on Friday reversed a lower court decision against one of those tenants, IDEA Boardwalk LLC, which had sought to block the sale while it could appeal to protect its property rights. The Wall Street Journal quoted Stuart J. Moskovitz, an attorney representing Straub, as having said that the buyer might walk away from the sale if an appeal interfered with the deal, even if it means losing his $10 million deposit.

Television personality Brian Williams arrives at the Time 100 Gala in New YorkNBC News anchor Brian Williams said on Saturday he was taking himself off the evening newscast for several days, responding to intense criticism over his claims that he rode in a helicopter that was hit by a rocket-propelled grenade in Iraq a decade ago. "In the midst of a career spent covering and consuming news, it has become painfully apparent to me that I am presently too much a part of the news, due to my actions," Williams said in a statement posted on NBC News' website. Williams, a star anchor who has garnered high ratings for NBC, said he planned eventually to return to the broadcast and "continue my career-long effort to be worthy of the trust of those who place their trust in us." Lester Holt, who typically anchors NBC Evening News on weekends, will step in to handle the weekday evening broadcast in the interim, Williams said. NBC, a unit of Comcast Corp, on Friday said it was launching an internal probe of Williams' false statements that he was in a helicopter in 2003 that was brought down by enemy fire during the U.S. invasion of Iraq.
