With a boycott of its service stations looming, Texaco has settled a race discrimination suit that's expected to cost the giant oil company more than a hundred million dollars. PETER BIJUR/TEXACO CHAIRMAN: THERE WERE COMPELLING REASONS FOR US TO REACH THIS AGREEMENT. IT MOVES THIS MATTER FROM THE REALM OF ADVERSERIAL CONFRONTATION IN THE COURTS INTO THE ARENA OF ACTIVE COOPERATION AND JOINT ACTION.
Plaintiffs sought more than half a billion dollars in damages. they alleged they had been held back at Texaco by a "good old boy" network that favored white employees. MICHAEL HAUSFELD, PLAINTIFF ATTORNEY) WHAT THIS CASE STANDS FOR IS THAT BIGOTRY HAS NO PLACE IN BUSINESS. THAT PREJUDICE HAS NO SANCTUARY IN COOPERATE AMERICA. REV. JESSE JACKSON: THE POINT IS THIS IS A TREMENDOUS BREAKTHROUGH. LAWYERS WHO ARGUED THE CASE DESERVE CONGRATULATIONS. WORKERS WHO HAD THE COURAGE TO FIGHT BACK IN THE FACE OF HOSTILITY, WORKERS WHO WERE CALLED JELLY BEANS AND THE LIKE AND WERE TREATED EVEN WORSE DESERVE MUCH CONGRATULATIONS.
The pressure on texaco to settle increased dramatically after tape recordings of a company mgeting _ere mcde public.
In the tapes, managers talked about minority employees in disparaging terms and of destroying company documents in the case.
(SOT--Tapes)


The tapes rocked texaco. the company suspended two executives, the oil company's chairman apologized and the Reverend Jesse Jackson called for a nationwide boycott.
Still with friday's settlement, the company's troubles are far from over.
A federal grand jury continues to investigate whether company documents were destroyed.

Eleven people have tested positive for the salmonella bacteria, and apparently one remains hospitalized from complications.
Authorities traced the source back to Jumbo's Family Restaurant on Route 460 east.
It's believed the ingredients in a shipment of macaroni and cheese COULD be to blame.
Jumbo's owners voluntarily closed the restaurant last week and hope to re-open sometime next week.
This is the first widespread outbreak of salmonella poisoning in the Lynchburg area in more than a year.
