Jim Lefton, assistant to the director of United Steelworkers, criticized the refinery on the sidelines of a public hearing on proposed methods to catch and avoid future refining catastrophes.
"BP will pay some money and they'll go on their way," Lefton said.
The same efforts to sell the facility explained why BP had not adopted more stringent safety agreements with the union at the Texas City refinery, Lefton said.

Jim Lefton, the assistant regional director for the USW, said much of the improved safety commitment from the company came after management decided to partner with the union on safety programs.
He said the company had accomplished nine of 10 points for improved safety at the refinery, including reducing work hours, teaming with the USW to form a process safety team and to better investigate mishaps, including near misses.
The company also has updated its safety education programs and drastically improved its maintenance staffing, Lefton said.
The only area lacking was partnering with environmental groups to improve the refinerys environmental performance. Lefton said that was not the fault of the company or the union but rather finding the proper environmental groups to partner with.
Have they corrected every problem? No, Lefton said.

"Management at the refinery has cost this company over $750,000 with this foolhardy approach to its employees," said PACE Region Six Representative Jim Lefton.
He said management at the refinery has ignored National Labor Relations Board directives to supply information to the union in order to properly represent its members and to protect them from the heavy-handed approach of refinery management.
Lefton expressed concern that management at the refinery could be compromising safety by having operators do maintenance work in addition to running very complex units.He warned that this should cause great concern for the residents around the refinery and in the nearby city of Pasadena.
Lefton said work crews have been harassed in the middle of the night by teams of supervisors bursting into control rooms trying to find policy violations among the work force.
