The USW represents workers at the Cleveland-based company’s operations in Michigan and Minnesota. The 37-month labor contract became effective Sept. 1.

"The new contract will cover about 2,400 USW-represented workers at Cliff’s Empire and Tilden mines in Michigan and its United Taconite and Hibbing Taconite mines in Minnesota," the company said in a statement Nov. 9.
