MANDAN, N.D. (AP) — Workers have ended informational pickets at North Dakota's lone oil refinery.

The United Steelworkers union and Shell Oil on Wednesday announced a tentative deal on a new three-year contract covering Shell refinery workers across the country. The Bismarck Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/zbevo0 ) that the deal will be used as a model for negotiations between union workers and Tesoro, which owns the Mandan refinery.

The tentative deal between the union and Shell must still be ratified by the 30,000 workers it covers.
