(PITTSBURGH) – The United Steelworkers (USW) today reached a tentative agreement with Allegheny County, raising wages and improving working conditions for more than 200 court-related professional workers.

The USW/Allegheny County Court-Related Professional Employees unit includes workers in the court records, district attorney, medical examiner and public defender offices.

“We thank the solidarity of the USW membership, as well as the county administration for their cooperation in the negotiations that led to today’s agreement and avoided the long, expensive arbitration process,” said USW District 10 Director Bernie Hall. “This deal is an important step toward bringing in and retaining the highly skilled professionals who are critical to ensuring justice in our community.”

The current contract was set to expire on December 31, 2022. A ratification vote is being scheduled, and once ratified, the new contract will run from January 1, 2023 to December 31, 2026.

The USW represents 850,000 workers employed in metals, mining, pulp and paper, rubber, chemicals, glass, auto supply and the energy-producing industries, along with a growing number of workers in health care, public sector, higher education, tech and service occupations.
