U.S. Steel And Workers Reach A Deal

It looks like the steel industry might be sharing its new fortunes with employees.

MarketWatch reports:

“The United Steelworkers union and U.S. Steel Corp. struck a tentative agreement for a new labor contract covering at least 14,000 workers, breaking a three-year wage freeze.

The union and company issued statements Monday afternoon confirming the initial deal, but representatives for both sides declined to comment on contract terms.

Workers for the Pittsburgh-based steelmaker have been pushing for raises in a new contract amid 25% tariffs on steel imports implemented by the Trump administration. Those tariffs have helped U.S. Steel raise prices, as the U.S. economy has expanded.”
