CLEVELAND - The United Steelworkers have reached a tentative agreement for a three-year contract with U.S. Steel, according to a news release on the union's website.
The contract would affect more than 16,000 workers at U.S. Steel's U.S. facilities, including workers at their Lorain, Ohio facility.
The company did not disclose details of the agreement, but the union said it involved figuring out how to deal with the rising cost of health care for retirees.
Union members will review the agreement.
United Steelworkers said it is still in talks with two other companies, including ArcelorMittal USA. ArcelorMittal USA has a facility in Cleveland.
Though their contract expired Saturday, workers will continue reporting to work, according to USW.
"We have been exchanging proposals with the company and remain engaged in negotiations," said USW International President Leo W. Gerard.
