Re: Pay and Benefits at Non-Represented Sites
The purpose of this bulletin is to elaborate on Decertification Update – October 28, 2021 through which we answered your questions about how pay and benefits at the Beaumont Refinery compare to similar non-represented sites.
While we are not allowed to make promises if you decertify the union (and will not do so), we can confirm that ExxonMobil considers core benefits as a standard offering for which all full-time regular employees are equally eligible. Specifically, non-represented employees are equally eligible for the Company’s pension plan. We can also report that employees at non-represented sites are paid between 5% to 7% more than comparable employees at represented sites.
To illustrate how these factors may impact an employee’s pensionable pay, we have provided the example below.
Pensionable Pay Scenario: If two employees hire into the Beaumont Refinery and Chemical Plant as Instrument Technicians at the same time, work for 35 years, and retire at the age of 60; the employee who spent their career at the non-represented Beaumont Chemical Plant would have a lump sum pension payment that is +$50K greater than the employee who spent their career at the represented Beaumont Refinery.
The fact is the Union can’t guarantee you better pay or benefits, yet you pay $125+ in union dues and have the risk of strike/lockout.
