DURANGO, Colo. (AP) - The BP office covering southwest Colorado
has removed company logos from about 200 vehicles after employees
complained of harassment.
Spokesman Curtis Thomas told the Durango Herald that employees
have been reporting routine abuse from the public, at traffic
lights, gas stations and the grocery store.
Thomas says employees have noticed a significant increase in
discrimination since a BP oil rig exploded in the Gulf of Mexico in
April. In July, vandals cut a BP logo out of an awning at the
Durango Arts Center.
