The union had recommended its members reject the Brazilian company's latest offer, saying it made only "minimal improvements." Vale Canada said it was disappointed by its offer being turned down by union members.

Discussions about steel and aluminum tariffs are still in the early stages and will take longer to resolve, the source said.

A lockout of union workers at Exxon Mobil Corp's (XOM.N) third-largest U.S. refinery continued without resolution after negotiators for the United Steelworkers union and Exxon met on Thursday for the first time in six weeks. The labor contract covering 650 union workers at Exxon's 369,024 barrel-per-day (bpd) Beaumont, Texas, refinery and lubricants facility expired earlier this year. Exxon locked out the union workers, citing worries over a walkout, and is operating the 2,700-acre (11-sq km) complex with managers and replacement workers. It wants to continue the seniority system for assignments.

The offer would give Exxon the flexibility to be profitable in even low-margin environments, the company has said.

Lumber prices have skyrocketed so much that it's causing remodeling nightmares and creating even more sticker shock in the booming housing market. "Steel prices are still in the stratosphere," said Phil Gibbs, director of metals equity research at KeyBanc Capital Markets. Murphy, whose organization opposed the Section 232 steel tariffs from the beginning, argued tariff relief is a way government can help accelerate the recovery while simultaneously easing inflation jitters. 'The tariffs must remain in place'The steel industry, however, is in no rush to say goodbye to the tariffs that have sent steel stocks to moon. "Eliminating the steel tariffs now would undermine the viability of our industry," seven of the leading groups representing the domestic steel industry wrote in a May 19 letter to Biden .

Europe eyes 'new basis' for trade ties with U.S.

BRUSSELS (Reuters) - European trade ministers will explore on Thursday a post-Trump re-set of transatlantic trade ties in virtual talks with new U.S. Trade Representative Katherine Tai. “We have the opportunity to create a new basis for global trade politics with the new U.S. administration,” German Economy Minister Peter Altmaier said ahead of the talks. For now the United States will maintain its tariffs of 25% on steel and 10% on aluminium. One area of emerging consensus between the EU and United States is the need for a tougher line on China. It also said exports to the United States leaped by more than 60% to 10.1 billion euros in the same period, underlining the importance of trade to Europe’s top economy.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. steel industry groups and the United Steelworkers union on Wednesday urged President Joe Biden to keep in place the steel tariffs imposed three years ago, saying that lifting them now would undermine the industry’s viability. FILE PHOTO: Steam rolls off a slab of steel as it rolls down the line at the Novolipetsk Steel PAO steel mill in Farrell, Pennsylvania, U.S., March 9, 2018. “Eliminating the steel tariffs now would undermine the viability of our industry,” wrote the heads of the American Iron and Steel Institute, the Steel Manufacturers Association, the United Steelworkers and other groups. The six-month truce leaves the U.S. metals tariffs in place and previously existing EU retaliatory tariffs, including 25% duties on American motorcycles and whiskey. The groups said steel is among a number of commodities in short supply due to the pandemic, including lumber, semiconductors, concrete, agricultural products and cleaning products.

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - The AFL-CIO, the biggest U.S. labor federation, on Monday will file the first petition for the U.S. government to bring a labor complaint against Mexico under the trade deal that replaced the North American Free Trade Agreement, the union said. Under USMCA’s “Rapid Response Mechanism,” firms in Mexico and the United States can face tariffs and other penalties for failing to ensure worker rights, such as freedom of association. The AFL-CIO’s petition marks the first time the trade deal’s labor enforcement is being put to use, and will be closely watched by companies and labor activists. “This is precedent-setting,” said Cathy Feingold, director of the international department of the AFL-CIO, which lobbied for better worker rights provisions in the USMCA. Davis said Mexico still has an obligation to guarantee the reform is playing out on the ground.

Exxon told union negotiators it expected no layoffs of hourly workers at the site, they said.

Talks between the two sides, at the 369,000 barrel-per-day (bpd) Beaumont refinery, have been underway since before a six-year contract expired on Feb. 1. Exxon’s lockout ultimatum came last week after the union offered a one-year extension of the six-year contract that expired. Exxon and the USW have been negotiating since January for a new contract.

“Instead, we are facing huge tariffs in a trade war - in a trade war not of our making.”The Milwaukee-based company is betting heavily on Europe, its second-largest market, to help fuel its turnaround strategy. But higher tariffs would give its rivals including Triumph, Honda and Suzuki a massive pricing advantage. USW President Tom Conway acknowledged the pain for Harley but said the protections needed to remain in place until Chinese excess capacity was reduced. Several blast furnaces shut last year remain idled, and newly built electric-arc furnace mills prompted by the tariffs have been slow to ramp up production. JOBS MIRAGEThe Trump administration had promised a rust belt jobs revival when it imposed the tariffs in 2018.

Tolga Akmen | AFP | Getty ImagesEmployees at Google parent company Alphabet formalized a union organization effort Monday after several years of attempts and increased turbulence between leadership and employees. So far, 400 of the company's more than 260,000 employees and contractors have signed up for the Alphabet Workers Union, which formally aligned with the Communications Workers of America. Google security guards organized a recognized union in 2017, and thousands of Google cafeteria staffers formed a union for better pay in 2019. With the legitimacy and growth of a formal union, workers still position themselves with dues-paying members and an elected board of directors. "Alphabet workers deserve a company with their and our users' best interests at heart, and our union is the way for us to make that happen."

The real winnings have gone to Carrier shareholders, whose shares have more than tripled since the company was spun out of United Technologies in April. And now, with Mr. Trump about to leave the White House, the factory is at a turning point. It is operating seven days a week, with mandatory overtime for workers. Carrier has been hiring, adding some 300 workers and bringing the total work force to nearly 1,050. James Adcock, an official with the United Steelworkers, which represents the Carrier workers, said there was hiring every week.

Panel Finds ‘Serious Concerns’ With Mexican Labor Reforms
  + stars: | 2020-12-15 | by ( Ana Swanson | ) www.nytimes.com + 0.92   time to read: +1 min
WASHINGTON — Mexico has made progress in implementing the sweeping reforms to its labor system required by the new trade agreement between the United States, Mexico and Canada, but serious challenges still remain, according to a new report by an independent board set up to evaluate those changes. The report, the first to be issued by the Independent Mexico Labor Expert Board, highlights one of the foremost trade challenges for the incoming Biden administration: ensuring that the goals of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, which went into effect earlier this year, are realized. The trade pact, which replaced the quarter-century old North American Free Trade Agreement, sought to improve labor conditions and pay for Mexican workers, as way to prevent companies from undercutting American and Canadian workers by moving their factories to Mexico. Among other changes, the agreement called for sweeping reforms to Mexico’s laws and institutions to make its unions more democratic, and set up independent bodies like labor courts to enforce those reforms. Ben Davis, the director of international affairs at the United Steelworkers and the chair of the independent board, said it “remains to be seen if Mexico’s labor reforms will allow its workers to escape the poverty wages that have done so much damage to them, and — through unfair competition — to workers in the U.S.”

Companies are consulting with lawyers, health care experts and polling their workers to gauge when to offer carrots and when to use a stick. Other workers say they will freely line up for shots once the rollout to health care workers proves successful. Workers who develop side effects should receive free health care and be paid for time out of work, he said. “We plan to secure as much as we could and offer to employees at our expense,” said Shlemon. The vaccine might convince at-home employees to return without fear of getting infected, and protect customers, he said.

REUTERS/Marcos Brindicci/File PhotoHOUSTON (Reuters) - Royal Dutch Shell Plc began the permanent shutdown of its 211,146 barrel-per-day (bpd) Convent, Louisiana refinery, the company said on Tuesday. The shutdown began when Shell idled the 12,000-bpd isomerization unit on Monday night, the sources said. Shell will keep the refinery on the market after it completes the shutdown by the Christmas holiday, the sources said. That package is similar to what Shell salaried employees are being offered, they said. Another 400 contractors work at the Convent refinery.

WASHINGTON/NEW YORK (Reuters) - Democrat Joe Biden would immediately consult with America’s main allies before deciding on the future of U.S. tariffs on China, seeking “collective leverage” to strengthen his hand against Beijing if he is elected president, Biden top advisers said on Wednesday. In political rallies, Trump has often claimed that Biden would take a softer approach to China. But due to the political sensitivities of easing U.S. pressure on China, questions remain about the prospect that Biden will act swiftly to decrease tariffs if he is elected. Immediate consultation would be needed “to identify areas where we can bring collective leverage on China,” Prescott said. “But they’ve been alienated, they’ve been insulted by President Trump, and that’s made our hand with China even weaker than it should be.”
