The Oilworker: Special Message from the NOBP Chair

Brothers and sisters,

It is with a heavy heart that I write this message about the BP Cenovus refinery fire and explosion in Toledo, Ohio, last night. The two brothers, both at home and in our union, succumbed to the injuries they sustained.

Our thoughts and prayers are with their families and brothers and sisters at Local 1-346.

I have fielded many calls and inquiries about support. Please see the information below, which is a fund set up by the local to help the families through this tough time.
