Washington, DC - The United Steelworkers (USW) announced today, Sept. 18, that the 13 locals at ArcelorMittal unanimously authorized a strike. About 15,000 workers could take part. The vote means that the USW bargaining committee now has the power to call a strike if needed.

At is issue are wages and demands by the corporation that the USW make concessions.

Leaders of the USW say they will not cave in to ArcelorMittal’s attacks.

Negotiations are also continuing with U.S. Steel.
