PITTSBURGH (AP) – The United Steelworkers union has reached a tentative four-year agreement with Allegheny Technologies after 2,200 workers were first locked out six months ago.
Union officials say their bargaining committee has reached a tentative deal that would end the lockout at a dozen plants in six states, many of which are in western Pennsylvania.
A company spokesman declined to comment, as union members must hear and vote on the agreement before details are made public. Members are expected to meet Saturday at Grandview Upper Elementary School in Tarentum.
Union Vice President Tom Conway tells the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review that it’s a “good agreement” and that he expects members will ratify.
The National Labor Relations Board must also approve the agreement.
