USW: ArcelorMittal dragging its heels

Back To Front Page


The United Steelworkers’ update this morning on this week’s round of contract talks with ArcelorMittal was short and to the point. And the point was this: with less than a month before the current contract’s expiration, on Sept. 1, union and management remain far apart on the salient issues.

The full text of the one-paragraph release:

“Negotiations yielded little progress this week. From local issues to major economics, ArcelorMittal has resisted in engaging in meaningful dialogue. As Sept. 1 approaches, these delays could be used as a tactic by management to undermine the bargaining process. Nonetheless, we remain committed to negotiating a fair contract in a timely manner. Please continue to work safely and stay united.”
