HOUSTON (Reuters) – Striking workers at Chevron Corp (NYSE:)’s Richmond, California, refinery voted on Saturday to ratify the latest contract offered by the company, ending a 10-week strike, said sources familiar with the vote.

About 500 workers began the strike on March 21 in a dispute over pay to match the high-cost of healthcare in the San Francisco Bay area where the 245,271-barrel-per-day refinery is located.
