Richmond, Cal., CBA campaign

The Contra Costa Times reported on Friday that Richmond city officials are seeking to negotiate a CBA with Chevron, which has proposed an $800 million upgrade to one of its plants.

Terms likely to be negotiated include restrictions on whether Chevron can process heavier crude or increase overall emissions, and investments for job training, police and fire services, funding for a local community health center, and possibly funding for a pilot "green" affordable housing project that would use an on-site renewable energy source.

Update here.
