ExxonMobil against consider proposal to bar anti- gay, trans discrimination

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

ExxonMobil has turned this proposal down before. Nasty company. Big Oil. Enough said. From Chris Johnson at the Blade:

All eyes will be on one of the nation's largest publicly traded companies next week when shareholders will vote on whether the company should make LGBT protections part of its formal non-discrimination policy.

At a meeting set for May 30 in Dallas, shareholders for the ExxonMobil Corp. will vote on a resolution to include sexual orientation and gender identity in the equal employment opportunity policy for its estimated 82,000 workers — a change the company has resisted.

The resolution is being put before shareholders by New York State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli. He's trustee of the New York State Common Retirement Fund, which owns more than 16 million shares of ExxonMobil at an estimated market value of $1.3 billion.
