The workers claim that they ended up with cancers like leukemia from exposure to benzene at the Uniroyal plant.

EAU CLAIRE (WEAU) – An oil company has reached a tentative deal to resolve claims a group of former Eau Claire Uniroyal employees filed against it and other businesses.

Attorney Mike Brose, who is among the lawyers representing the former workers, says Shell reached the tentative agreement. He says the workers claim that they ended up with cancers like leukemia from exposure to benzene at the Uniroyal plant. It was used as a solvent in the rubber-making process.

Brose would not release details of the deal because it hasn’t been filed in court yet.
