Deer Park Texas

Latest update

With the new contract now in place, we will use a systematic and methodical approach to bring remaining represented employees back to work

A four-year labor agreement was reached at the national bargaining table on March 12 with the United Steelworkers (USW), the labor union that represents Shell Deer Park’s hourly employees. Local union members at our Shell Deer Park Site voted to ratify the labor agreement on Thursday, March 19.

With the new contract now in place, we will use a systematic and methodical approach to bring employees back to work. All hourly employees will receive a letter in the next few days with their individual details for returning to work in addition to information on participation in a mandatory orientation session.  If a represented employee did not receive a letter by Monday, March 23, they should contact their Supervisor by Tuesday, March 24 to learn about return-to-work plans. We look forward to all remaining employees returning to work, in a phased approach by the end of the month.

Shell Deer Park is a 1,500-acre complex located in Deer Park, Texas, approximately 20 miles east of downtown Houston along the Houston Ship Channel. Founded in 1929, Shell Deer Park is now home to 1,700 employees who operate a fully integrated refinery and petrochemical facility 24 hours a day.
