Labour Dispute Resolved at ArcelorMittal Canada
ArcelorMittal Mines and Infrastructure Canada confirmed that its workers ratified the agreement in principle reached between the company's management and the negotiating committees of the five local unions of the United Steelworkers. The labour dispute that began on May 10 has ended in accordance with the back-to-work protocol agreed to by the two parties. The new four-year collective labour agreement will provide stability for both employees and all the company's partners.
