Teamsters at Marathon St. Paul Park refinery begin strike

Nearly 200 refinery workers represented by the International Brotherhood of Teamsters in St. Paul Park, Minnesota, walked out on strike after failing to agree on a new contract with Marathon Petroleum by the end of 2020, the union said on Thursday.

The union voted to authorize a strike at Marathon’s 102,000-barrel-per-day refinery in St. Paul Park in December of 2020.

“At this time, we have safely assumed operation of the refinery with trained and qualified personnel,” a company spokesman said. (Reporting by Laura Sanicola; editing by Richard Pullin)
