Steel workers picket, current labor contract extended

News

Arconic and union employees reached a temporary deal to extend the current labor contract.

That word came Wednesday night after dozens of employees hit the picket line earlier pushing for a new contract.

The contract was going to expire at midnight.

Employees say the company is strong enough to maintain health and retirement benefits.

A spokesperson for Arconic says, “The goal is to reach a long-term agreement that is fair to employees [and] allows the business to grow.”
