Tesoro Refining and Marketing Company 2015 Refinery Strike
We represented Tesoro in connection with all legal matters growing out of a United Steelworkers (USW) strike at Tesoro’s refinery in Anacortes, Washington, a facility that employed over 200 striking employees. We obtained an injunction in Washington Superior Court against unlawful picketing activities that was then being carried out by the USW. We also represented Tesoro in unfair labor practice proceedings before the NLRB with respect to charges Tesoro filed against the USW and in defense of Tesoro in charges filed against it by the USW. We also provided advice to Tesoro throughout the strike concerning all strike-related matters, such as picketing, plant access, unemployment claims, communications and similar matters. The strike was settled in the latter part of March 2015.
