USS, USW set Lake Erie labor talks

Keywords: Tags  U.S. Steel, Lake Erie Works, United Steelworkers union, USW, labor talks, lock-out

NEW YORK — U.S. Steel Corp. and United Steelworkers union officials will meet July 23 and 24 to discuss the company’s latest labor contract offer for locked-out workers at the Lake Erie Works in Nanticoke, Ontario.

The Pittsburgh-based steelmaker said last week that it had asked the Ontario provincial government to intervene and order a vote on its final contract offer (, July 15).

The union negotiating committee has said on its social media website that the company’s newest proposal is a "bad deal" and not in the "best interests" of its membership.

The meeting comes 12 weeks after failed negotiations resulted in U.S. Steel locking out some 1,000 hourly workers at Nanticoke (, April 29).

A U.S. Steel Canada representative could not be reached for comment.
