Mills, USW Resume Negotiations

Negotiations have resumed between the United Steelworkers and two major steelmakers. The USW is engaged in negotiations with Allegheny Technologies, Inc., and ArcelorMittal after reaching a deal with U.S. Steel in December. The talks remain contentious.

“Our committee was hopeful that the tentative agreement our union reached with U.S. Steel would lead the company [ArcelorMittal] to change its approach to bargaining in the New Year. Unfortunately, that is not the case,” the USW claimed in a release. ArcelorMittal reportedly made a concession on an issue involving monthly premium payments for medical coverage, but other benefit-related issues for both retirees and active union members remain sticking points.

ATI resumed discussions without the presence of mediators, hoping to find agreement and end a lockout at the facility that began back in August. The USW claims all of the issues on the table at the start of the lockout are again being discussed, including new hires, active and retiree health care, and scheduling, among others.

“While we are encouraged that the discussions have continued and we anticipate ongoing and further talks, we will not accept an agreement that is dictated by ATI on their terms,” a release from the union claims.
