HOUSTON (Reuters) – Workers at Exxon Mobil Corp’s Baytown, Texas, refinery are scheduled to vote early next week on a new three-year contract proposal, according to the United Steelworkers union (USW).

Negotiators for the USW and Exxon hammered out the contract proposal in talks that finished late Tuesday, according to a statement posted online by the union.

Exxon spokesman Jeremy Eikenberry confirmed the company has been engaged with USW local 13-2001, which represents the refinery workers.

Workers are scheduled to vote on Monday and Tuesday.
