Union leaders called strikes at nine U.S. refineries today in a bid to pressure oil companies to agree to a new national contract covering workers at 63 plants.

The walkouts, the first held in support of a nationwide pact since 1980, target plants that together account for more than 10 percent of U.S. refining capacity.

The discord comes as plunging crude prices force oil companies to slash spending.
