    while vs whereas

    Hi,

    Question:
    Any difference between while and whereas in my sentence?

    Sentence1:
    The Union wants a 15 % increase in wages, while/whereas De Beers is offering 7.5%.
    Sentence2:
    Unilever reported half-year earnings up 10 % while/whereas the six-month operating margin fell 0.2 % points.

    thanks

    There is no difference in meaning.
