Steelworkers: No ArcelorMittal strike now
Management wants to cut costs
PITTSBURGH (AP) – The United Steelworkers have decided not to go on strike now over stalled negotiations with steelmaker ArcelorMittal.
The union says in a statement Friday that striking is still an option for the future. The contract, which expires Saturday, covers 14,000 employees in eight states – Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota, Louisiana and South Carolina.
Luxembourg-based ArcelorMittal wants to slash wages and benefits and have the unilateral right to cut wages during business slowdowns.
