Union workers turn the heat up in fight over oil terminal in the Bronx

Dozens of union workers at a Bronx heating oil supply facility braved freezing rain Wednesday to fight for their jobs and protest the planned transfer of their Port Morris facility.

Nearly 50 Castle Oil deliverymen and mechanics fear they will be let go when the company’s massive terminal is sold to New Hampshire-based Sprague Energy for $56 million, the Daily News first reported last week.
