Union members will join San Antonio area labor activists and other supporters to spread the message that Chevron needs to negotiate in good faith for a fair contract so that workers can return to their rightful jobs.

About 500 USW Oilworkers have been on strike against Chevron's unfair labor practices since March 21, 2022. Chevron refused to return to the bargaining table, giving workers no choice except to strike after rejecting the company's "last, best and final" contract ultimatum.

Chevron management is leading a workshop about attracting and retaining employees at the American Fuel and Petroleum Manufacturers 2022 Petrochemical Conference.

Workers will assemble outside the Grand Hyatt for a rally from 8 until approximately 9:30 a.m.
