Nearly 300 Chevron Drivers & Mechanics Laid Off

June 01, 2010

SAN RAMON, CA - Chevron Corp. confirmed it has trimmed 295 jobs, affecting workers in its transportation and mechanics operations, according to the Contra Costa Times.

The 295 jobs eliminated drivers and mechanics, 71 percent of whom were located in Northern California. Job cuts also occurred at Chevron sites in Southern California, Oregon, Washington state, Nevada, Arizona, Utah, Hawaii, and Florida, reported the Times.

"As part of our global downstream restructuring efforts, Chevron is transitioning from a transportation fleet consisting of Chevron employee and third party contractors to an all third-party carrier fleet in the U.S.," said Sean Comey, a Chevron spokesman.

As the last major oil company to maintain its own fleet in the U.S., according to Comey, "this model is no longer sustainable given the challenging economic conditions affecting the downstream industry," said Comey.
