USW Once Again Calls on ATI to End Lockout and Return to Bargaining

(Pittsburgh) – The United Steelworkers (USW) International Vice President Tom Conway released the following statement today following a meeting with representatives of Allegheny Technologies Incorporated (ATI).

“The USW met today with ATI with the participation of the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service (FMCS) and made a proposal in an attempt to end the lockout.

ATI failed to respond and maintained its position in its “last, best and final” offer.

“The USW remains ready to continue discussions and we call on ATI once again to come to their senses and settle a fair contract which would put our members back to work making steel.”

The USW represents 850,000 workers in North America employed in many industries that include metals, rubber, chemicals, paper, oil refining and the service and public sectors, including 2,200 members at 12 ATI locations. For more information: and
