Steelworkers reject 2nd Wise Alloy contract

Posted: Updated:
COLBERT COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

The United Steelworkers of America Local 200 and Wise Alloys still have not agreed upon a contract.

The USA rejected a new five-year contract Thursday. The contract was the second proposal in a week.

The new offer was tentatively agreed upon by the Union Bargaining Committee and recommended favorably to the USA.

The executive vice president of Wise Alloys, Wes Oberholzer, said the contract provided pay and benefit improvements, good jobs with good working conditions, and it compares favorably with the proposals that have been ratified earlier.

He said they are disappointed the contract was rejected and that it was their best offer.
