Tentative agreement reached with ArcelorMittal

DULUTH, MN — The United Steel Workers union has announced the negotiating committee has reached a tentative agreement with ArcelorMittal.

The contract agreement covers about 15,000 USW members of 13 local unions.

USW says the proposed four-year agreement mirros the industry standard on wages, lump-sum payments and pensions, and maintains or improves existing health insurance benefits for active and retired steelworkers, as well as their dependents.

A detailed contract summary is in the works, as well as ballots and voting instructions, which will be mailed to individual members.

Local union explanation meetings are also being scheduled to review the tentative agreements.

Workers have been working on expired contracts since July, when negotiations began.
