At Union Seminar

PRIIR's Ben Nixon Gives Highlights

On Four Labor Relations Topics

Before a forum of union lea-
ders and representatives of bu-
siness and the press, Lago's
PR/IR Manager B. E. Nixon
lectured at the Recreation
Center of the Hotel Workers'
Union in San Nicolas Oct 10.
He was one of the speakers
at a seminar organized by the
HWU from October 6 to 11.
During the four-hour ses-
sion, which included a one-
hour workshop, Mr. Nixon co-
vered four labor relations to-
pics: the need for unions; res-
ponsible union leadership; col-
lective bargaining; and nego-
tiating the work agreement.
After HWU Vice President
Gaston Boasman had welcom-
ed the group, Mr. Nixon was
introduced by Union President
John Hart.
Speaking on Responsible
Union Leadership, Mr. Nixon
stated that "Union representa-
tives sometimes stray from
their real responsibility."
"There is no greater need to-
day than for responsible labor
leaders," he pointed out.
Mr. Nixon mentioned three
prerequisites for effective col-

of a free union, recognized as

Don't Let Oil Drop
Become a Fugitive
From the moment a tanker starts unloading its crude cargo
at the Lago piers until the finished product is pumped into
tankers for export, it is the responsibility of every employee
concerned to see to it that the oil, in whatever form or grade,
never touches ground. If it does, it will become a "fugitive" and
will escape to the subsoil where it came from.
How much oil is lost can only be guessed from the amount
of oil that is recovered from Lago's 14 miniature oil wells:
60 barrels a day or some 22,000 barrels a year. What is recov-
ered in this way is perhaps a small percentage of the actual
oil that seeps through the porous coral from leaking valves,
pumps, pipe connections or overflowing tanks.
Other places where the "fleeing" oil is finally trapped are
the separators. Here approximately half a million barrels of
oil is recovered a year, but still hundreds of barrels of oil get
What employees can do to help stop the oil from "being a
fugitive" is: report oil leaks at once to their supervisor, avoid
wrong line connections and be alert against tank overflowing.
For 1968, the total oil loss from all sources at Lago is esti-
mated at approximately 3,800 barrels a day.

No Laga Druppel di Azeta
Bira un Fugitivo
For di moment cu un tankero cuminza descarga su carga-
mento di zeta crudo na wafnan di Lago, te ora e product final
ta word gepomp den tankeronan pa exportacion, ta respon-
sabilidad di cada empleado concern! di percura pa e azeta ey, den
cualkier form cu ta, nunca cai den suela. Si azeta cai abao e
ta bira un fugitiveo" y ta scapa den tera for di cual el a sali.
Cuantu azeta ta bai perdi nos por rei solamente for di can-
tidad cu diariamente ta word saca for di Lago su poznan mi-
niatura: 60 baril pa dia, esta 22,000 baril pa anja. Locual ta
bini bek di e manera ey kizas ta un porcentahe chiquito di e
cantidad real cu ta bai den tera poroso for di lekmentu di val-
vula, pompnan, coneccionnan den tuberia of tanki cu basha
Otro camindanan cu compania ta recoge su azeta bek final-
mente ta separadornan. Eyden tur anja mitar miljon di bari
di azeta ta bini bek, pero toch centenares di baril di azeta ta
bai perdi.
Loke empleadonan por haci pa evita azeta di bira un "fugiti-
vo" ta: report mes ora na nan supervisor cualkier lek di azeta
cu nan mira, evita coneccionnan robez den tuberia y percura
pa ningun tanki basha over.
Pa 1968 compania ta calcula cu total di azeta perdi for di
tur fuentenan na Lago ta mas of menos 3800 baril pa dia.

Labor Relations I
5. Insure continued efficiency
and high productivity in
the company to promote
and improve industrial and
economic relationship of the
company and employees.

One basic need for any com-
pany, Mr. Nixon stressed, is to
preserve in the contract the
right to run the business and
to make changes.
A modern business cannot
operate successfully unless it
can change to take advantage
of new technology, new proce-
dures and new work methods.
However, Mr. Nixon re-
marked, the unions have the
right to protest these changes.
They need to know if the chan-
ges are necessary or not, and
why they must be made. They
have the responsibility of pro-
tecting the interest of their
members. They must explain
the reasons to their members,
so they also understand why
the company must make a

tion of a working agreement,


Gets New Section For


Effective October 1, 1969, a
new section was formed in
Technical.Process Engineering
Division. This new section, call-
ed the Hydrodesulfurization

Section, will initially have the
technical responsibility for the
final process design stages of
the HDS Project and for the
startup operations. Long
range, the section will be res-
ponsible for the process engin-
eering contact effort on the
HDS units.
Mr. E. V. Holzer has been
named Engineering Supervisor
of this section. The following
initial assignments have been
made to the section: Messrs. C.
K. Rodkey, A. H. Hoo, J. H. V.
Harlow, G. W. Gilmore and D.

Mr. Nixon emphasized that it
is important to determine: 1.
What the workers' problems
are; 2. What the needs of the
workers are; 3 What the work-
ers want; 4. What the union
Mr. Nixon was very firm in
explaining that bargaining is
not a question of: We want
this or we want that. "That's
demanding", he said.
"The union must be prepar-
ed to give justification for each
request against a well-prepar-
ed management. What you get
out of the negotiations may
well depend on how well you
do your homework of prepar-
ing your justifications, your
sound reasons to back up your
demands", Mr. Nixon told the
union leaders.
Following the workshop, Mr.
Nixon handed out some sample
clauses of various provisions
that may be included in a
work agreement.
The Hotel Workers' Union
was formed in September 1964
and now has 1050 members
employed in five hotels. The
board of the HWU consists of
John Hart, president; Gaston
Boasman, vice president; Pe-
dro H. Croes, general secreta-
ry; Hilton Hill, treasurer; and

Continuing the improvement
of the refinery road system,
the road along the refinery
fence on the north side has
been rebuilt. The 3,000 feet
long, 20 feet wide, first-class
road connecting Gate 4 with
Gate 8 was completed recent-
ly (See Chart I).
The road, which is provided
with a 1-inch layer of asphalt

concrete, has been straighten-
ed by removing the curves,
while the grade differences -
sometimes up to 10 feet have
been smoothed out as much as
possible. At appropriate loca-
tions, railings and side roads
were built.
Another part of the road
system under construction is
the 900 feet stretch from Tank
169 to Tank 904 (See Chart II).
This road will tie in with the
new roads built last year lead-
ing to the 630,000-barrel Tank

masha important pa sabi de-
lantd cua ta e mihor cos pa
haci ora cu algu bai malu di

kiko bo mester bacL

Aqui tin algun di emergen-
cianan cu por socede, y nos
sugerenda cu por juda Bo tu-
ma action defensive corecto.

Bo Luz di Adilanti a Paga

Ta un coa ao bo por hade ora
bo lunan di adilanti tur paga,
y di repente bo ta hanja bo
den scuridad tene curso
recht den direction di camin-
da. Cera breek mas duru cu
bo por pero sin causa bo auto
di slip. Hala bo auto asina leu
na cantu di caminda cu por y
fuera di traflco cu bo por.
Intention ta di reduce bo
veloddad liher promer cu un
error di stuurmento haci bo
kita for di caminda.

Unabez bo a para, pone luz
di aviso riba caminda of usa
un flashlight pa avisa traflco
an ta b b bo tras cu tin pell-
ger eynan. Si bo por cende
tur cuater luz di direccon di
bo auto, cende nan.
Si nada no ta traha ra-
dio, lus di paden etc. anto
bo problema probablemente
ta cabel di b bacteria of fuse-

nan. Mira cu e cabel ta bon
conecta na tur dos banda.

Si solamente e luznan di
adilanti ta pagd, anto inter-
ruptor di circuit a habri (ri-
ba autonan modelo nobo).
Pasobra interruptor ta traha
cu cajente, e ta habri y cera
y di e manera ey e ta duna
bo luz intermitente pa juda
bo pone bo auto na seguridad.


Majoria di candela den auto
ta causa pa corto circuit. Por
ta imposibel pa bo desconecta
bo bacteria sin herment. Pues
no perde tempu. Saca e man
di bo jack for di haul y cund
ranca e wajanan cu ta kiman-

Si bo no tin cos di paga can-

algun articulo di bisti, paso-
bra un kimA di coriente por ta
serio. (Aunke autonan ta usa
solamente 12 volt, amperahe
of forza di coriente por ta ho-
pi haltu ora algun cos faya).
Bo por tambe trata di para un

tin un cos di paga candela.
Si e candela ya ta for di

It's Good To Know What to Do

Before Things
A driver may find himself/
herself in many emergency
situations. It is very important
to know beforehand what is
the best thing to do if some-
thing goes wrong. However,
here are two basic rules that
can help in any difficult si-
tuation : 1. Stay calm. Don't
panic. 2. Know what to do.
Here are some emergencies
that may occur and hints that
may help you take the right
defensive action.

Your Headlights Go Out

There's only one thing to do
if your headlights go out and
you're suddenly plunged into
darkness hold a steering
course in the direction of the
road. Brake as hard as you
can without throwing yourself
into a skid. Ease onto the
shoulder as far from a traffic
lane as you can get.
The idea is to pull your
speed down quickly before a
slight steering error takes
you off the road.
Once stopped, set out flares
or use a flashlight to warn
oncoming traffic. Use the
four-way flasher if they are
If everything is dead -
radio, interior lights, etc. -
the problem probably is the
battery cables or fuses. Check
the cable terminals at both
If only the headlamps are
out, the circuit breaker (on
newer model cars) has open-
ed. Since it is heat actuated,
it should open and close, giv-
ing you intermittent light to
help you to safety.

Really Happen

Most car fires are caused by
a short circuit. It may be im-
possible to disconnect the bat-
tery terminals without tools.
So don't waste time.
Get the jack handle from
the trunk and rip loose any
burning wires.
They are a lot less expensive
to replace than a burned-out
If you don't carry a fire ex-
tinguisher, try to smother
burning wires with a large ar-
ticle of clothing. Don't grab
burning wires with your bare
hands. Use a heavy cloth or
article of clothing because an
electrical burn can be serious.
(While autos use only 12
volts, amperage or current
can be relatively high in a
malfunction). You can also
try to stop a passing car, that
may have an extinguisher.
If the fire is beyond your
control, get away from the car
before the gas tank explodes.

A problem in the mind of
Lago engineer George J. Cve-
janovich back in 1963 on how
to measure the conductivity
of spent caustic resulted in a
patent for Max Sand and Geor-
ge himself. An instrument
technician when he left Lago
in 1967, Max is now manager
of Industrial Instrument &
Electronic Equipment. George,
who was in Technical-Lab in
1963, is at present a senior en-
gineer in Technical-Process
The patent, awarded recent-
ly, covers an apparatus to
measure the electrical conduc-
tivity of corrosive fluids with-
out allowing the electrodes of
the testing instrument to come
into direct contact with the
The advantage of this appa-
ratus over conventional equip-
ment is that it avoids electrode
corrosion and delivers more
exact measurements.
When the electrodes come in
contact with the liquid, impu-
rities cling to them and ham-
per accurate readings.
The device, used in measur-
ing the conductivity of either
gases or liquids or mixtures
thereof, is comprised of two
One is a capillary glass U-
tube conductivity cell with two
small silver-coated reservoirs
on each arm of the U-tube.
The other compartment con-
tains a power supply unit, a
control and selector unit and


the recorder equipment. The
recorder is connected by two
electrical leads to the silver
coating of the reservoirs.
Measuring is done by intro-
ducing the liquid or gas into
the U-tube by means of a ca-
pillary tube connected to the
bottom of the U-tube.
It then flows upward to fill
the branches of the U-tube.
Alternating current is subse-
quently applied to the silver
coating on the reservoirs.
This current is transmitted
through the glass which acts
as the dielectric or insulation
of a condenser with the fluid
The resistance of the fluid
determines the amount of cur-
rent that will flow through the
capillary tube from one reser-
voir to the other, which can
be read on the recorder.
The invention may have
broad application in the petro-
leum and other industries
where it is necessary or desir-
able to isolate the electrodes
from the material being meas-
Licensed under U.S. Patent
No. 3,447,070, the invention
of Max Sand and George Cve-
janovich has been obtained
