Progress made on USW, U.S. Steel contract negotiations

Progress is being made on negotiations between United Steelworkers and U.S. Steel.

According to the union, the mining company and the USW bargaining committee held discussions this week and progress was made.

The union said U.S. Steel now has a willingness to work with the union on big issues like the term of the contract agreement and benefits.

Local union leaders, including those from Minntac and Keetac, will head back to the bargaining table in Pittsburgh early next week.

This comes after USW and Cleveland-Cliffs agreed on a tentative contract agreement over the weekend.

Meanwhile, union leaders from ArcelorMittal, which runs the Minorca mine in Virginia, returned to Pittsburgh Wednesday to continue bargaining efforts there.
